The Asia-Pacific Endocrine Conference (APEC)


It is my great honor to hold the 29th Annual Meeting of the Asia-Pacific Endocrine Conference (APEC) on March 16th and 17th, 2018 at the Melia Hotel Hanoi, in Hanoi, Vietnam.

The first APEC was held in Singapore in 1988. Since then, we have held this academic conference in many different countries in Asia and Pacific area.

The aim of APEC is to gather Japanese and international endocrinologists in order to share and debate new concepts in diagnosis, clinical management and research findings regarding endocrine disease. Moreover, APEC aims to contribute to clinical, scientific development in the field of medicine and allow Japanese physicians the possibility of building friendships with international endocrinologists from Asian counties. It is also a great opportunity for young Japanese doctors to improve their presentation skills in English at an international conference.

The29th APEC will be jointly hosted by a Bach Mai Hospital, Friendship Hospital and Medical Hospital for Army, flagship hospitals in Hanoi, Vietnam in collaboration with the Vietnam and Hanoi Societies of Diabetes and Endocrinology. I would like to express my sincere gratitude to Co-chairman, Dr. Do Trung Quan (Associate Professor of Hanoi Medical University, President of Hanoi Society of Diabetes and Endocrinology), and Honorary Chairman, Dr. Thai Hong Quang (Professor of Medical University for Army, President of Vietnam Association of Diabetes and Endocrinology) for kindly agreeing to jointly host this event. It is my hope that this conference will further deepen the friendship between Vietnamese and Japanese physicians.

On top of these academic merits, I can assure you that the 29th APEC conference will be a memorable experience in Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam, known for world heritage-listed spot, aesthetic landscape of HaLong Bay. We look forward to seeing you from all over the countries.
