WELCOME - 2021-2022
The Philadelphia Endocrine Society (PES) is the oldest local endocrinology organization in the country and this year we are celebrating our 79th anniversary. We are excited to be celebrating the 100th anniversary of the discovery of insulin this year, and thrilled to offer another year of renowned and engaging speakers on a wide range of cutting edge clinically relevant endocrine topics to both adult and pediatric endocrinologists.
Membership includes eight programs, a buffet dinner at each (when in-person) and a chance to interact with colleagues in an informal setting. Cost is $100 physician members, $200 for industry/pharmaceutical representatives, and $50 for ancillary clinical personal. Fees are waived for fellows and residents in training.
Our first lecture will be Wednesday, October 13, 2021 when Andrew Bauer, MD, Associate Professor of Pediatrics a the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania and Medical Director of The Pediatric Thyroid Center at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, will speak on thyroid cancer in the pediatric population. Our November symposium will focus on endocrine disorders in pregnancy and we are excited to have a wonderful line-up. Please see the entire lecture series on our website.
Due to the ongoing challenges related to the COVID-19 pandemic, we expect there may be ongoing changes to the educational format of our programs over the next few months. While we are hoping and planning to have educational programs in-person, we are actively preparing virtual and hybrid formats as well. We hope that you will be able to join us this year for all of the programs, whether it be in-person or virtual.
When in-person, the programs begin at 6:00 P.M. with cocktails, dinner at 6:30 P.M., followed by the lecture at 7:00 P.M. The sessions are held on the campus of Thomas Jefferson University in Alumni Hall, 1020 Locust Street, Philadelphia, PA. Please visit the website for the specific location of each lecture. Parking is available in the TJU Hamilton Garage, 221 S 11th street . PATCO service is also nearby at the 10th and Locust stop. Please support our programs with your membership. Dues can be paid online or by checks, which should be made payable to “Philadelphia Endocrine Society.” They can be delivered in person at the first lecture or mailed after submitting the online membership application. Tax deductible donations can also be made to the Philadelphia Endocrine Society, please visit the website for further details.
We look forward to another exciting year of highly educational programs!
