I’m elated to share the latest ENDO 2022 updates that will surely pique your interest and reinforce the inimitable value of us connecting as one global endocrine community.
Your dedicated Annual Meeting Steering Committee (AMSC) recently concluded a rigorous planning meeting, an important milestone in the process which contributes to 80% of the ENDO 2022 curriculum. This was no easy feat; designing a flagship conference entirely online — as opposed to convening in-person over three days — presented unique challenges, as well as novel opportunities. Proudly, the entire AMSC banded together and rose to the occasion, producing a robust lineup of sessions that encompass the comprehensive breadth and depth of scientific and clinical endocrinology.
Full disclosure, I personally favor in-person meetings — especially after a two-year hiatus — and will be in Atlanta looking forward to connecting with you in-person!
ENDO 2022, taking place June 11 – 14, will be the Society’s inaugural hybrid meeting. That’s right, attendees can participate in Atlanta or online, or both! This increased flexibility will foster expanded connectivity, community, and knowledge sharing amongst our diverse, international community. Each format has intrinsic benefits and when the time comes, you will have the option to select the best format that suits your desires and needs. Though, in full disclosure, I personally favor in-person meetings — especially after a two-year hiatus — and will be in Atlanta looking forward to connecting with you in-person!
Attendees can expect top-flight education at ENDO 2022, as well as a new vibrancy and contemporary conference experience with expanded networking. Learners at this year’s conference can expect a range of carefully curated sessions in a variety of delivery formats spanning the endocrinology journey from bench to bedside and back again. From symposia, a perennial favorite format featuring presentations for leading minds in basic research, clinical research, and clinical practice, to connection content, new programming centered around the skills developed outside of the lab and the exam room that drive success, ENDO 2022 attendees will have the opportunity to tailor their learning experience to fit their precise professional and personal development needs. Further, the Society is also ramping up its investment in technology-forward learning enhancements to align the ENDO learning experience with the reality of day-to-day life in the 21st century.

I also want to punctuate that we are reinforcing our commitment to social responsibility and DEI (diversity, equity, and inclusion) by hosting an EndoCares program for underserved Atlantans. This community-centric program will provide onsite, complimentary medical screenings, health and wellness coaching, and patient education. Most importantly, EndoCares is designed to foster lasting connectivity between Atlanta-based healthcare providers and underserved residents to ensure those in need have continued access to essential care and resources.
Despite ongoing challenges with COVID-19, I remain optimistic that 2022 will herald an era of renewal, opportunity, and connectivity. In that spirit, we are planning for a blockbuster ENDO 2022 that will showcase the very best science and maximize relationship building opportunities.
