Sheikh Nahyan opens 1st Neuroscience Conference
(Abu Dhabi) – Sheikh Nahyan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, Minister of Culture, Youth and Community Development, opened the first day of three-day long Neuroscience Conference, organised by the Abu Dhabi Health Services Company “SEHA,” at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre.
In his inaugural speech, he commended SEHA and the Pan Arab Neurosurgical Society for choosing the UAE capital, Abu Dhabi, as the site of SEHA’s first gathering of professionals working in the field of neuroscience. Sheikh Nahyan praised the experienced medical scholars who are presenting their views and sharing their knowledge.
The minister noted that President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al-Nahayan, has created one of the fastest growing healthcare systems in the world. He also referred to the follow up of Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, and His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, to further develop the healthcare system nationwide.
Stressing the vital role of professionals working in the field of neuroscience, Sheikh Nahyan said, “We depend on your study of the nervous system, on your ability to diagnose our problems, and on your skill to make informed interventions.”
Sheikh Nahyan said in his speech: “Distinguished Guests, Ladies and Gentlemen: I am delighted that SEHA and the Pan Arab Neurosurgical Society have chosen Abu Dhabi, the capital city of the United Arab Emirates, as the site of SEHA’s first gathering of professionals working in the field of neuroscience. Abu Dhabi is the nerve center of our nation and should consequently be the perfect setting for the sixty-two updates and upgrades that will inform your three days of educational endeavor.
I join you all in expressing my deep appreciation to the experienced medical scholars who are presenting their views and sharing their knowledge. You exemplify the collegial communication that is so vital to success in the relatively new and absolutely ever-changing realm of neuroscience.
By focusing on the best practices and the latest research findings, you not only guarantee a high degree of relevance for your sessions, but also raise our awareness of the enormous promise of your work in treating and preventing disease and illnesses.
I admire your resolve to updating and upgrading your knowledge. Like most people, I am ignorant about neuroscience. Even though we all have nervous systems and may even recognise that a nervous system distinguishes us from sponges, most of us people on the street know virtually nothing about the science of the wondrous system that keeps us alive and functioning. We depend on your study of the nervous system, on your ability to diagnose our problems, and on your skill to make informed interventions.
