    What is most important in the 7th COMBO ENDO course idea, which is constantly supported by European Endocrine Society, Hellenic Endocrine Society and HYGEIA Hospital, Athens Greece, is that it has been found fertilizing ground among inspired colleagues and in a growing number of young physicians of several specialties. Consequently, a debt of gratitude is owed to each one of the distinguished tutors and speakers, who are embarking on their scientific topics and are serving our ultimate targets of applied endocrinology combining education with clinical practice! Therefore, from heart thanks to their synergistic confluence that has given life to 7th COMBO ENDO, a very demanding and highly aiming interactive course. My sincere thanks go to generous financial supporters who against all odds have helped us to make steps steadily forward and sustained the scientific strength to pursue our dreams in sharing the knowledge of Endocrinology and Diabetes.

    Thus, we have arrived at 7th COMBO ENDO with a certain degree of pride, but with a greater degree of responsibility to every participant, whose presence in this course consolidates our commitment and dedication to teach and practice evidence based medicine!
