Ohio River Regional - AACE 19th Annual Meeting

Columbus, OH US
July 28, 2017 to July 29, 2017

Endocrinologists have one of the most diverse patient populations of any medical specialty. The plethora of endocrine conditions they see, and the dynamic pace of clinical research in those areas, requires that these professionals regularly update their knowledge of the varied conditions they treat.

This two-day meeting of the Ohio River Regional Chapter of the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists is designed to do just that. Covering a wide variety of topics, including diabetes, neuroendocrine cancers, obesity, endocrine-related adverse effects of new cancer immunotherapies, menopause, osteoporosis, and Cushing’s disease, offers an educational smorgasbord designed to increase clinical knowledge and, thus, improve the quality of patient care and outcomes. This meeting will also feature a more personal presentation from a physician about the changes he has seen in his more than 50 years in the field of endocrinology.

This meeting builds off the success of the 2016 educational forum, in which nearly 90% of participants said they planned to make changes and/or reinforcements to their practice as a result of the information presented.

Target Audience
