Endocrine Society to Host Twitter Chat on PCOS

The Endocrine Society on Thursday will host a Twitter chat focused on polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) to coincide with women’s health month, moderated by Society member Genevieve S. Neal-Perry, MD, PhD, who directs the University of Washington Medicine’s Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility Center.

Log on to Twitter Thursday, September 22, from 12:30 PM—1:30 PM Eastern for this event, and use the hashtag #EndoChat.
