Dear Colleague,

The Philadelphia Endocrine Society (PES) invites you to another year filled with exciting renowned speakers. PES is the oldest local endocrinology organization in the country. This year we will continue our tradition of inviting nationally and internationally known experts from a wide range of endocrinology, diabetes, and allied subjects to speak.  

Membership includes nine programs and allows you access to wonderful educational opportunities and a chance to interact with colleagues in an informal setting. As always, a buffet dinner and light bar is included at the evening lectures, and a seated breakfast is served at the November symposium. Membership in the Society provides access to all lectures and meals for the entire year and is only $100 for physician members, $200 for industry/pharmaceutical representatives, and $50 for ancillary clinical personnel. Membership fees are waived for fellows and residents in training.

Our first lecture will be on Wednesday, September 16, 2015, featuring Dr. Bassil Kublaoui of The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia discussing human obesity syndromes.

Please help support these fine programs with your membership. Dues can be paid online or by check. Checks should be made payable to “Philadelphia Endocrine Society” and can be delivered in person at the first lecture or mailed after submitting the online membership application and dues form. The membership application and dues form is available on the website. If you would like to do more to support the Society, tax deductible donations can be made also by check or online via the website.

Most lectures are held on the fourth floor of the Hamilton Building of Thomas Jefferson University, 1001 Locust Street or in Alumni Hall, 1020 Locust Street. Parking is available for $12.00 after 5:00 P.M. in the TJU Hamilton Garage, located underneath the Hamilton Building, with entry at 221 S 11th Street (just north of Locust St). Sessions begin with cocktails at 6:00 P.M., dinner at 6:30 P.M., and the lecture at 7:00 P.M.  

This year’s November symposium will be held on Saturday, November 14, 2015 at the Loews Philadelphia Hotel at 1200 Market Street, Philadelphia, PA 19107. You may contact them for directions at (215) 627-1200 or via the web at http://www.loewshotels.com/philadelphia-hotel/meetings/. Limited discounted parking will be available. The symposium will begin at 8:00 A.M. with registration and a seated breakfast beginning at 7:15 A.M.

We hope that you will enjoy our 2015-2016 program. See you at the next meeting!
