Welcome Message

Dear Colleague,

I want to welcome you all to the 5th Annual OTC Abu Dhabi forum. The first OTC conference was established in 2010 as a flagship event for MCO. We look forward to bringing you an exciting schedule for Over the Counter medications that many pharmacists will find relevant.

The workshop theme this year targets common patient requests: smoking cessation, responding to GI symptoms, headache and fever, respiratory infections as well as dermatological issues. With excellent and engaging speakers bringing 6 hours of CME, and a brand new venue- the newly opened Novotel Al Bustan in Abu Dhabi- you will be satisfied with time well-spent at this conference.

Please join us as a sponsor, or attend as a delegate. Feel free to contact the Program Director Ms. Erica Charves for further information: erica@mco.ae, 02-6588717, or 055-4048142.

Former Head of Pharma, Medicine & Medical Regulatory Section, Health Authority Abu Dhabi (HAAD)
