WELCOME MESSAGE

LET'S PREPARE TOGETHER THE FIFTH MIDDLE EAST CONGRESS ON AGE AGEING & ALZHEIMER'S THAT WILL TAKE PLACE IN TRIPOLI, LEBANON

The 5th Middle East Congress of Age, Ageing, and Alzheimer's will bring together a network of key players, renowned scientists and professionals representing all fields of gerontology and geriatrics. Major changes continue to occur in Geriatric Care in the Region. These changes were greatly contributed to by various actors in the region including the Middle East Academy for Medicine of Ageing that started in 2002 and had played a leading role in the region in terms of education, training, and development. So far the Academy has had five cycles of postgraduate courses. Abyad Medical Center and Middle East Longevity Institute were instrumental in organizing these meetings. Over the previous years, several reputable official governmental, regional and international organisations have helped in the development of the academy.


In an attempt to answer some of the deficits in the region, the Middle East Association on Ageing & Alzheimer's (MEAAA) was established in 2005 in order to support various activities in the field of aging and Alzheimer's disease, in addition to launching the Middle East Journal of Age & Ageing in 2003 a peer reviewed journal, published to advance the status of gerontology in the Middle East and North Africa region and to share research and clinical study between nations of the Middle East and between the Middle East and the rest of the world. The Middle East Network on Age & Ageing Research MENAR was founded to promote research in the ageing field in the Region. So far three projects have been completed by the network.


There are 18 countries participating in this landmark event in the region. In addition to 60 international, regional and local speakers well known in their field. The exhibition will provide the opportunity to meet experts and professionals, to share ideas and experiences with colleagues from around the world, to learn about projects and techniques from five continents and to strengthen the formal and informal ties between professionals.

We look forward to welcoming you in Lebanon
