Geriatric Medicine Challenges as a new Specialty

1st King Abdulaziz University Geriatric Medicine Conference

Hilton Hotel Jeddah, Saudi Arabia

4 - 6 March, 2020

Opening statement from President of the Conference:


Dear colleagues,
It is a great pleasure to invite you to the 1st King Abdulaziz University Geriatric Medicine Conference, to be held from the 4th to the 6th of March 2020 in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. The conference theme “Geriatric Medicine Challenges as a new Specialty”. During the next decade geriatric medicine will further develop its profile by incorporating innovative diagnostic and therapeutic approaches. This year`s conference will have a special focus on these challenges which are driven by the fact the specialty is considered one of the new specialties, with lack of awareness to its presence by different health care workers and the different needs of the older patients. Add to that despite the significant advances in technology and pharmaceutical innovations, still the needs of older adults are still not met. The conference will reflect the diversity of our specialty in all its facets and will offer new ideas and insights for clinicians and health care workers working with older patients.
Join us in Jeddah! It is always worth the trip, especially on the occasion of the 1st King Abdulaziz University Geriatric Medicine Conference.

Mohammed A. Basheikh
President of the Conference
