A total of 1,700 participants from different parts of the world have registered for the second edition of the international healthcare congress and exhibition - Qatar Health 2010 - to be held at the Doha Exhibition Centre from December 10-15. More than 40 local and international sponsors and exhibitors from Italy, Thailand, Kuwait, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, and other GCC countries, including Qatar, will offer a wide range of information on the latest healthcare services and equipment for all visitors. Main exhibitors are Ali Bin Ali Medical, Aspetar Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Hospital, University of Calgary, Weill Cornell Medical College in Qatar and NBK Projects Promotions. University of Calgary public affairs director Gail Fredrickson said that the university aimed to showcase the development of nursing education in Qatar and to attract nursing students. “We are pleased and proud to be part of Qatar’s investment in the future by offering our students excellence in theoretical and practical nursing education. Our goal is to continue to work with the country to realise the vision of change and development through teaching and graduating generations of exceptional nurses,” she said. Aspetar marketing communications manager Wendy Mitchell said: “Through Qatar Health, we aim to present our expertise to athletes, sporting organisations and healthcare professionals working in the sports sector.” Ebn Sina Medical general manager Eman Bader said: “In co-operation with all our partners of the leading multinational pharmaceutical, medical supplies and consumer health companies, will be presenting the most innovative and up-to-date products and technologies throughout the whole event. She mentioned that Ebn Sina will be introducing different medicines for cancer treatment as well as new technology in wound care management. During the event Ebn Sina Medical will launch its 40th birthday celebrations. Qatar Health 2010 will showcase advances in healthcare research and technology, and provide an international forum for the exchange of expertise between healthcare professionals. This year, the exhibition will cover 16 different tracks with the participation of more than 110 internationally renowned speakers. The tracks are designed to cover a wide variety of healthcare disciplines that include research, medical, scientific, clinical, administration and management topics. Most of the tracks are target towards doctors, nurses and allied health professionals as well as students who are working towards a professional career in the healthcare sector. Some of the lectures, however, such as a general information lecture on plastic surgery, will also appeal to the general public who can visit the exhibition area free of charge.
