Arizona - AACE 2018 Annual Meeting

Sedona, AZ US
September 7, 2018 to September 9, 2018

Welcome and thank you for attending the Arizona Chapter of AACE 2018 Annual Meeting.

The Arizona Chapter of AACE program committee has worked very hard to provide a relevant activity for the practicing clinical physician and other healthcare providers seeking education with an emphasis in endocrine disease.

This program has been planned to provide pertinent scientific and clinical information to help you achieve the best solutions in the diagnosis and therapeutic management of patients presenting with endocrine disease. Attendees will obtain updates in not only common and uncommon endocrine disorders, but also newer treatment modalities.

Providing exceptional patient care requires continuing high quality education. The American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists (AACE) was founded in 1991 by a visionary group of leaders to serve as the active voice for clinical endocrinologists. The impetus behind AACE's efforts has always been quality and cost-effective patient care for those with endocrine diseases and disorders. We hope that you will find this program of great value to you in your practice.
