This year’s meeting was attended by over 140 healthcare professionals—the most in its almost decade-long run. Distinguished speakers and key opinion leaders were invited from the United States, Europe and the Middle East, enriching the scientific content of the meeting. Multiple workshops and research presentations were carried out during both days, and attendees were eligible to receive 10 CME.
