Annual Meeting Overview
AACE Philippine Chapter’s Annual Meeting returns to Cebu!
This year’s theme, “The G.O.O.D. Chronicles” will present Research Highlights, Concurrences and Controversies in Endocrinology in general and the G.O.O.D. diseases, namely, Goiter, Obesity, Osteoporosis and Diabetes in particular. With the field of endocrinology being ever-changing, the updates that will be presented in this, our 9th Annual Meeting and Clinical Congress, will be useful in equipping our attendees with the knowledge that they will need in dealing with this wide range of endocrine diseases.
This will also be the 7th Joint International Meeting of the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists and the AACE Philippine Chapter. Not only are we extremely proud of this continued partnership between the mother society and our local chapter, but even more so with the presence of not one but THREE Past Presidents of AACE, namely R. Mack Harrell, MD, FACP, FACE, ECNU (2014-2015), Jeffrey I. Mechanick, MD, FACP, FACE, FACN, ECNU (2013-2014) and Hossein Gharib, MD, MACP, MACE (2002-2003) and the President Elect for 2015-2016, Pauline M. Camacho, MD, FACE. Thus, the aptly-entitled, “Meet The Presidents” symposium scheduled at the last day of the Congress promises to be a most-welcome opportunity to interact with and learn from these experts.
Another highlight in this year’s congress is the conduct of the 1st Joint Symposium of the Philippine Chapters of both the AACE and the American College of Cardiology, which serves as our pre-congress on August 5th. We certainly look forward to this exchange of knowledge between endocrinologists and cardiologists.
A warm welcome to all and here’s to an excellent Congress. Let the GOOD adventure begin !
