German – Arab Workshop to Combat Diabetes – Experiences and Telematic Innovations, Dubai UAE

13.01.2012
The German Federal Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Economics of the Northern Province of Mecklenburg - Vorpommern cordially invite you to attend a workshop informing about best healthcare practices and diabetes management from Germany. The workshop is organized at the occasion of the Arab Health 2012 on Monday, 23 January 2012 at 4.00 PM at the Shangri-La Hotel (Sheikh Zayed Road), Arjawan+Yasmin (1st floor) in Dubai.

About 366 million people worldwide are suffering from diabetes. The diabetes rate in the UAE is among the highest in the world with currently 19.2%. The Emirate of Abu Dhabi alone is spending more than AED 1 billion per year to treat diabetes and diseases connected with it.

Diabetes treatment programs have started worldwide and focus on prevention and personalized, evidence-based treatment, utilizing clinical practice guidelines and innovative technologies in diabetes care. Germany has strong expertise in the field of diabetes treatment and flagship projects like the Personalized Diabetes Management System of the Institute of Applied Diabetes Research Karlsburg (KADIS) are internationally groundbreaking.

The “German – Arab Workshop to Combat Diabetes – Experiences and Telematic Innovations” aims to inform healthcare professionals from the UAE and Gulf region about best practices from Germany and is designed to be an interactive exchange among local and international healthcare experts to show solutions for the effective treatment of a growing number of diabetes patients.

After the workshop you are cordially invited to join us for a networking reception in the foyer.

The seminar will cover the following topics:
• Worldwide Epidemic of Diabetes Mellitus: Challenge for Healthcare Authorities
• The Challenge of Diabetes Mellitus in Arabic Countries
• Cardiac and Vascular Complications of Chronic Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus
• New Approaches to Treatment and Perspectives for Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus
• Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus in Children and Adolescents: Epidemic and Prospects
• Telematic Applications in Personalized Diabetes Management
• Economic Impact of Diabetes Treatment

NASA's follow-on to the successful ICESat mission will employ a never-before-flown technique for determining the topography of ice sheets and the thickness of sea ice, but that won't be the only first for this mission.

Slated for launch in 2018, NASA's Ice, Cloud and land Elevation Satellite-2 (ICESat-2) also will carry a 3-D printed part made of polyetherketoneketone (PEKK),...

Im Focus: Sinking islands: Does the rise of sea level endanger the Takuu Atoll in the Pacific?

In the last decades, sea level has been rising continuously – about 3.3 mm per year. For reef islands such as the Maldives or the Marshall Islands a sinister picture is being painted evoking the demise of the island states and their cultures. Are the effects of sea-level rise already noticeable on reef islands? Scientists from the ZMT have now answered this question for the Takuu Atoll, a group of Pacific islands, located northeast of Papua New Guinea.

Im Focus: Energy-saving minicomputers for the ‘Internet of Things’

The ‘Internet of Things’ is growing rapidly. Mobile phones, washing machines and the milk bottle in the fridge: the idea is that minicomputers connected to these will be able to process information, receive and send data. This requires electrical power. Transistors that are capable of switching information with a single electron use far less power than field effect transistors that are commonly used in computers. However, these innovative electronic switches do not yet work at room temperature. Scientists working on the new EU research project ‘Ions4Set’ intend to change this. The program will be launched on February 1. It is coordinated by the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR).

“Billions of tiny computers will in future communicate with each other via the Internet or locally. Yet power consumption currently remains a great obstacle”,...
