CEU 2019: Miami Is Beckoning!

Every year, the Endocrine Society holds Clinical Endocrinology Update (CEU), which brings together hundreds of endocrine clinicians for a unique learning experience and opportunities to network with expert faculty and colleagues.

Once again, CEU East will be held in Miami, Fla., while CEU West moves up the West Coast to Seattle, Wash., to allow for multiple options to better serve the endocrine community by exploring the newest breakthroughs and changes in the field of endocrinology. Renowned faculty from around the world will present a comprehensive, in-depth endocrine program.

Each three-day meeting will focus on the latest updates in the diagnosis and treatment of endocrine conditions, giving attendees the opportunity to apply their knowledge to real-life scenarios. Sessions include Meet-the-Professor, debates, and panel discussions. CEU’s smaller, more intimate setting means guests will have more opportunities to work alongside and network with colleagues and experts in the field.

CEU East will be held in Miami from September 5 to 7, and if you haven’t haven’t registered yet, we’ve provided even more motivation to get you there aside from the Endocrine Society’s top-notch program with world-renowned endocrine experts.

Welcome Back to Miami!

There’s a great reason CEU is returning to Miami in 2019; it remains one of the United States’s – and the world’s – most popular vacation spots. While many destinations claim to offer something for everyone, Miami does indeed offer multiple enticements for all walks of life. From the trendy nightlife in South Beach to the art deco eye candy and family-friendly outdoor attractions, Miami really does have something for everyone!

What to Do

With its white sand beaches, turquoise waters, and subtropical climate, Miami is the place to enjoy the great outdoors. Miami is home to some of the best snorkeling and scuba diving in the U.S., with colorful views of marine life and coral reefs, as well as lush tropical vegetation. A day on Miami’s beaches is a must. Miami’s most famous beach is South Beach, the most bustling spot along the Miami coastline. Most locals with families opt for South Pointe Park Beach because of its kid-friendly facilities, including a mini wading pool, playground, and South Pointe Park Pier. For an ideal spot to sunbathe or just relax, Miami Beach’s central stretch offers a more relaxed atmosphere than the always buzzing South Beach.

But there’s also life beyond the beach in Miami! An art lover’s paradise, Miami is an epicenter for arts and culture with its innovative arts districts, internationally acclaimed art shows, and countless galleries and museums. Art Center South Florida is a cultural center and studio space hosting roughly 20 artists in residence. One of the most ambitious and recognizable galleries in Miami is Spinello Projects which encompasses a design house and a platform for “nomadic site-specific and curatorial special projects.”

Where to Stay

CEU returns to the InterContinental Miami, the host hotel for CEU 2019. This iconic hotel is located on the shore of Biscayne Bay at the heart of bustling downtown Miami and offers rooms and suites with breathtaking views of the city or water.

While at the InterContinental, you can pamper yourself with a trip to the spa for a variety of treatments. Other amenities include a 24-hour fitness center, a sauna, and a beautiful outdoor pool, ideal for a refreshing dip after a day of CEU.

What to Eat

Gone are the days when Miami’s culinary scene evoked images of early bird specials for snowbirds flocking from the frigid temperatures of their hometowns. Now, the first thing to come to mind is fresh seafood and many restaurants are capitalizing on the fresh resources located right outside their doors. Michael Schwartz, James Beard Award-winning chef/owner of Michael’s Genuine Food and Drink focuses his menu on the area’s year-round access to fresh fish and produce. And Joe’s Stone Crab lets the main ingredient of their most famous dishes shine without adding too many ingredients to take away from the fresh seafood taste. That idea is clearly working as the restaurant has been in business for over a century!

La Sandwicherie isn’t an actual restaurant; it’s a sandwich counter with outdoor seating, but it’s not just any sandwich counter! It’s a gourmet, French-inspired sandwich counter where everything comes served on one of fresh French baguettes or buttery, flaky croissants.

The Design District’s Mandolin Aegean Bistro, housed in a blue- and white-trimmed 1940s bungalow, features Greek and Turkish cuisine, while Sanguich de Miami serves up what has been called the best Cuban food in Miami in a quaint, 25-seat restaurant with a menu of classic Cuban sandwiches and made-to-order batidos.
