We are delighted to announce the 5th World Congress on Controversies to Consensus in Diabetes, Obesity and Hypertension (CODHy) which will take place on November 20-22, 2015 in Istanbul, Turkey. The World CODHy Congress was established in 2006; following its unprecedented success, it has expanded to include regional congresses in Latin America and Asia Pacific. In celebration of the World CODHy's 5th anniversary and CODHy's 10th worldwide congress we are thrilled to announce that this up coming congress will introduce an innovative concept and are pleased to invite you to join us in this milestone. The Scientific Program will introduce "State of the Art Lectures”, and expert panels exchanging ideas through "Think Tank” sessions, encouraging the participants to take an active role in these discussions. In addition, the program will include a significant allocation of time for interactive debates and questions from the audience to each panel of experts. The Congress prides itself in having an outstanding World-renowned faculty and the most up-to-date clinical, scientific and academic program, concentrating not only on future therapies and interventions, but also on disease prevention and treatment goals. As in previous years, the proceedings of this World CODHy Congress will be published in a special supplement of the Diabetes Care Journal featuring peer-reviewed articles by CODHy's prestigious speakers.
