ENDO 2012’s Media Wrap-Up
Endocrinologists are not the only ones interested in ENDO 2012—so are the media. This year’s annual meeting yielded 2,550 news pick-ups from numerous television, online, and print outlets, including CNN, the Los Angeles Times, Associated Press, WebMD, MedPage Today, The Atlantic, and Science News. Stories from the conference appeared worldwide in such nations as Canada, England, Cambodia, Malaysia, India, United Arab Emirates, and North Korea. Twenty-one journalists on-site and an equal number online attended six ENDO 2012 press conferences organized by Aaron Lohr, director of Media Relations at The Endocrine Society. The most popular story was a promising reversible testosterone gel contraceptive for men. Among the other news disseminated were reports on vitamin D deficiency linked to weight gain in postmenopausal women, weight loss by eating dessert at breakfast time, and secondhand smoke increasing the risk of type 2 diabetes and obesity.
