WELCOME - 2020-2021
September 1, 2020
The Philadelphia Endocrine Society (PES) is the oldest local endocrinology organization in the country and this year we are celebrating our 78th anniversary, and even though the past six months have been interesting, to say the least, we are very excited 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 nine 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 14, 2020 and James Findling, MD, Clinical Professor of Medicine and Director of the Community Endocrinology Center and Clinics at the Medical College of Wisconsin will speak on his approach to adrenal insufficiency. Our symposium this year will focus on diabetes and related technology and we are excited to have a wonderful line-up. Please see the entire lecture series on our website.
Due to our recent public health emergency, we expect there to be ongoing changes over the next few months to this schedule. Last year we had a wonderful turnout for our inaugural virtual fellows’ symposium and 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!
