Emirates News Agency – SEHA to host 8th annual elite Ped-GI Congress


ABU DHABI, 20th May, 2022 (WAM) — Abu Dhabi Health Services Company (SEHA), the UAE’s largest healthcare network, is set to host the 8th edition of the annual elite Ped-GI Congress from 19th to 21st May, 2022, at the Beach Rotana Hotel, Abu Dhabi.

The three-day hybrid conference will host expert local and international speakers who will cover clinically significant updates and comprehensive trends relevant to the practice of pediatric gastroenterological, nutritional, and liver disorders.


In addition to serving as platform for attendees to upskill, enhance their existing knowledge, and share best practices, the conference will serve as a networking platform within the pediatric gastroenterology community and facilitate establishing and strengthening clinical collaborations.

Speaking about the significance of the congress, Prof. Mohamad Miqdady, Conference Chairman, Chief of Pediatric Gastroenterology at Sheikh Khalifa Medical City, and Clinical Professor at Khalifa University, Abu Dhabi, said, “Gastrointestinal disorders in children are extremely common and quite expansive. The recognition, diagnosis and management of these conditions is considerably challenging especially since accurate articulation of symptoms is something children often struggle with.”

“We are extremely proud to host the 8th edition of the congress, and the agenda put together by the scientific committee aims to facilitate some poignant discussions, sharing of best practices and the way forward for the international pediatric gastroenterology community,” he added.
