This year’s theme of “Back to Basics; Adding Years of Healthy Life” celebrates the progress we have made so far; it serves as a reminder to re-align our future goals for the betterment of healthcare, while never losing sight of the foundation and goal of how we all began. The Organising Committee has specially invited a line-up of renowned and prominent local and overseas experts to share their expertise and vast experience on various healthcare topics. Look out for the SHBC 2018 Scientific Competition, a staple for the congress and highly anticipated by respected abstract submitters. Take a breather in between tracks and drop by the exhibition booths curated exclusively to the delegates’ interests, or pop by the Freemium sessions for refreshing talks outside of the main programme.
