10th & 11th August 2019 at Uday Samudra beach hotel, Trivandrum, Kerala

It is with distinct pleasure that we invite you to the 7th Jothydev's Professional Education Forum (JPEF) Annual Global Diabetes Convention2019, which has established itself as the biggest of its kind in Kerala. This conference in recent years has become one of the most prominent gathering in South India for promoting the pedagogical purpose of diabetes research and latest advancements in diabetes care. This two-day convention is organised by JPEF under the aegis of P. Kesavadev Trust in association with DiabetesIndia.

The theme of the 7th JPEF Annual Global Diabetes Convention is ‘In the ocean of advances, learning is power’. We strive to promote contemporary learning style akin to previous years, with a significant number of distinguished speakers, both at national and international level, speaking on a wide array of topics important for diabetes health care professionals. This for sure would help both established health care professionals and students alike to broaden the horizons of their clinical practice.

The contemporary Uday Samudra Hotel located at the pristine beaches of Kovalam will serve as the convention centre, hardly 20 minutes’ drive from the airport. Located just 15 meters from the sea, Uday Samudra is an exclusive 5‐star beach hotel‐a destination by itself. Comfortable accommodation is also available for the delegates at Kovalam's top‐rated hotels like The Leela, Taj Cove, Uday Samudra, Turtle on the Beach and many more.

We eagerly look forward to meeting you at Kovalam, Trivandrum.

Date : 10th & 11th August 2019
Venue : Udaya Samudra, Five star beach hotel, Kovalam, Trivandrum, India
