After the success of last year’s special issue to promote and highlight the Endocrine Society’s Clinical Endocrinology Update (CEU) program, we decided to make it an annual tradition. For the second year in a row, CEU will take place twice in the September on both the East and West Coasts — Sept. 5 – 7 in Miami, Fla., and Sept. 19 – 21 in Seattle, Wash. Also taking place in Seattle is the annual the Endocrine Board Review being held immediately prior to CEU on Sept. 17 and 18.
Once again, it is our hope that this special issue of Endocrine News will entice you to attend one of these conferences. Clinicians who have attended CEUs in the past have raved about the intimate setting as well as the fact that none of the sessions compete with other sessions. Therefore, anyone who attends CEU can see every single session unlike the bigger conferences that are filled with concurrent educational tracks. With CEU, you’re not forced to choose between topics; you can see it all!

If you’re not convinced at what all the CEU programs have to offer, just start flipping through this issue; we’ve not only included a few selected highlights from the sessions, but we’ve also included highlights of the destinations, as well as Q&As with the committee chairs of both CEU programs, Marc-Andre Cornier, MD (p. 12), and the Endocrine Board Review Steering Committee chair, Serge Jabbour MD (p. 38).
With so many great sessions and faculty, it was truly difficult to pick which ones to highlight in this issue, but somehow we managed to winnow it down to the testosterone therapy treatments (p. 16), hormone replacement therapy debate (p. 22), diabetes on a budget (p. 28), and treating Graves hyperthyroidism (p. 32).
If you still can’t decide which CEU to attend, we have a travelogue on page 42 by Courtney Carson that may help you make up your mind. In “CEU Coast to Coast,” there are plenty of reasons to venture to Seattle or Miami this September with a number of attractions to experience as well as plenty of places to wine and dine after the day has ended. Those days at CEU are long and intense so you will definitely want to make the most of your down time. And if your family wants to go with you, why not extend your trip by a few days?
So register for the CEU program of your choice today; early bird rates are in effect until August 1 for both locations: www.endocrine.org/ceu.
