Welcome 2022 - 2023

August 2022

Dear Colleagues,

Greetings! The Philadelphia Endocrine Society (PES) is the oldest local endocrinology organization in the country and this year we are celebrating our 80th anniversary. 

We are very excited to offer another fascinating year of renowned and engaging speakers on a wide range of cutting edge clinically relevant endocrine topics to both adult and pediatric endocrinologists. Currently, we have close to 60 members attending PES conferences who come from the Philadelphia, South Jersey and Delaware localities.

As President of the PES, I would like to invite you to become a Member. Membership includes eight programs, as well as the cocktail reception and dinner buffet meal 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 personnel. Fees are waived for fellows and residents in training.

Our first lecture will be Wednesday, October 12, 2022 when Richard Auchus, MD, PhD, Professor of Internal Medicine and Pharmacology, James A. Shayman and Andrea S. Kevrick Professor of Translational Medicine at the University of Michigan will speak on the topic of Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia. Our November symposium will focus on pituitary disorders, and we are excited to have a wonderful line-up. Please see the entire lecture series on our website

The October – December programs are scheduled to be in-person, with October and December being held at a new venue, Craft Hall, and the November symposium at The Union League of Philadelphia. 

Due to the ongoing challenges related to the COVID-19 pandemic, there may be updates in format and venue as needed and we will keep you informed via email and on the website. We hope that you will be able to join us this year for all of the programs.  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. 

Please support our programs with your membership. Please feel free to share this information with your professional staff, including research personnel, physician assistants, nurse practitioners and any other interested colleagues. 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 meeting you and having another exciting year of highly educational programs!
