The Ellisras Longitudinal Study and other Non-Communicable Disease Studies International Conference organizing committee takes pleasure in inviting you to the 2nd International Conference on poverty and cardiovascular diseases from 3–5 December 2019 at the University of Limpopo and Ellisras/Lephalale. The major sub-themes for the conference include: 1) lifestyle risk factors for non-communicable diseases: tobacco and alcohol consumption; 2) nutrition, dietary intake and physical activity; 3) biological risk factors for non-communicable diseases: biochemical parameters, hypertension, genetics, lipid profiles, diabetes; 4) growth, maturation and ageing; and 5) child health and health education. The conference provides a unique inclusive platform for discussion by ordinary members of the Ellisras/Lephalale community, expert scholars, students and experienced professionals from all over the world offering a truly special international networking experience, as well as a comprehensive and interactive programme in which participants can cultivate their cross-cultural and communication skills while highlighting different topics related to poverty and cardiovascular diseases.
Keynote speakers for the conference include Prof. Han C.G. Kemper, Paediatric Exercise Physiologist and Epidemiologist, Principal Investigator of the Amsterdam Growth And Health Longitudinal Study, Amsterdam UMC, Amsterdam Public Health Research Institute, The Netherlands and Prof. Mahmoud U. Sani (MBBS, FWACP, FACP, FACC, FRCP Edin), MD and Cardiologist, Department of Medicine, Bayero University Kano/Aminu Kano Teaching Hospital, Nigeria. Preliminary speakers will also be scheduled at the conference.
The programme will have a long-lasting effect on the conference participants as well as the Ellisras/Lephalale communities, as the knowledge gained will be taken back to our respective communities and families. Only papers presented at the conference will undergo vigorous peer review and be considered for publication in this Special Issue of Children.Prof. Kotsedi Daniel Monyeki
