Organizing and Scientific Committee Address

 

Once again, we are gathered for the Asthma Awareness meeting for the
sixth time. This meeting has slowly and surely rose to gain the distinction of being one of being one of the major awareness activities in the Kingdom.


The meeting has a clear mission to increase awareness amongst Healthcare
workers and providers who have unselfishly indebted themselves in taking care of Asthma Patients. As it needs a multi-disciplinary approach, different disciplines are involved in the realization of this important event, which reflects the genuine partnership amongst us.


Another important goal is to integrate the newly released Global Initiative for Asthma (GINA) update in the Scientific Program in order to standardize the methods of Asthma Management.

We are proud to unfold the durable sixth leaf of the Asthma Awareness Event’s indefinite years of success and we are confident that it has gained the unquestionable reputation of being one of the major activities related to Asthma
in the Kingdom.

 

I will take this opportunity to thank my colleagues for the outstanding scientific program, the members of Postgraduate Training Center for their support, Public Relation and other support services, and the sponsoring pharmaceutical companies.
