Welcome Message to SCCS 2017
I am happy to welcome you to the 8th annual Saudi Critical Care Society conference and scientific meeting. (SCCS-2017) The conference this year will be held in the beautiful facilities at Inaya Medical College in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
The Saudi Critical Care Society (SCCS) was founded in 2007 so this year marks our 10th anniversary. Over the years the society has grown steadily into a full service society. The SCCS is heavily involved in critical care education throughout the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia holding more then 180 specialized critical care courses per year. The society has been a major force in helping to improve the level of knowledge through our professional development courses and we hope to expand and improve this venture.
The SCCS has steadily grown from our humble beginnings ten short years into a full service, professional and fast growing medical society. None of this could be achieved without the support of our membership so I wish to thank all of you who have supported us over the years.
The conference scientific and organizing committees have worked hard to provide you with the best possible conference again this year. We hope you will enjoy this year’s offering. The speakers at this year’s conference are truly regional leaders of the critical care community.
The pre-conference courses held this year at that the SCCS Headquarters offer a varied and wide variety of choices for all professions involved in the professions of critical care. We will continue our tradition of delivering high quality critical care educational programs to our community.
I welcome you to SCCS 2017 as our guests; please enjoy your conference and your opportunity to interact with some of the premier members of the critical care world.
Dr. Amin Yousef, MD, FCCP
President, Saudi Critical Care Society
