As part of the program, you will engage with interactive stations, hear your colleagues' viewpoints on relevant topics impacting your clinical practice, and meet the dedicated Lilly Diabetes team. Food and refreshments will be provided for attendees. RSVP today.
Basic Science Pathway Receptions
As you start planning your schedule, don't forget to add these special events!
This Year's Basic Science Pathways, focusing on reproductive health, nuclear receptors and gene regulation, and neuroendocrinology, will all conclude with a reception. Please RSVP to any, or all, receptions you would like to attend below.
The Pan American Neuroendocrine Society Meeting will focus on epigenetic regulation of endocrine signaling; functional investigation of neuroendocrine circuits; circadian and metabolic control of neuroendocrine function; and neuroinflammation and neural injury in neuroendocrine states.
At the American Thyroid Association Symposium 2019, discover the role of various imaging modalities in the evaluation of patients with thyroid disease and examine the clinical indications for various image-guided therapies for management of thyroid conditions.
This year’s Enhanced Science Pathways will feature Neuroendocrinology, Nuclear Receptors and Gene Regulation, and Reproductive Endocrinology. Throughout ENDO, these special “meeting within a meeting” tracks integrated focused discussions, oral and poster abstract sessions, and networking opportunities. To further promote science and networking, each pathway, will have a reception with thought leaders and the next generation of researchers. These pathways will provide you with an ideal way to surround yourself with both the latest research, and the opportunities to meet those leading the research that will impact your own career.
First Time Attendee Events and Resources
Ease into ENDO by participating in the activities planned specially for first-time attendees. To help you get into the New Orleans spirit, we will be handing out Mardi Gras beads to all first timers, and we encourage you to wear them to the meeting every day to be eligible to win special prices.

We cannot wait to welcome you to your first Endocrine Society Annual Meeting!
Below are a just a few of the highlights of this year’s program:
Plenaries that are dramatically varied, ranging across topics from utilizing big data in science and clinical care to novel therapeutic targets in disease and cancer. And, National Institute of Health (NIH) Director, Francis S. Collins, MD, PhD, will give our Presidential Plenary, Whole Genome Approaches to Unraveling Diseases.
Guided Poster Discussions offer a fast-paced overview of some of the most exciting research at ENDO. Each session includes a series of 5-minute short presentations followed by question and answer time with the presenter.
Our Meet-the-Professor Sessions that deliver the latest groundbreaking diagnosis and treatment options for helping your patients. Our experts are among the top practitioners from around the globe, and will cover topics including obesity and metabolism, reproductive health, and more.
A new scientific event, Bioinformatics Workshop, will provide you with an in-depth look into data repositories, resources and tools available, and the know-how to both find information on a single molecule and the how-to build high-quality networks to enable network analysis.
Experience New Orleans from the ENDOExpo Hall! Visit our Wellness Lounge to meet with your colleagues, play some games, visit with therapy dogs, and get information on stress and burnout. Once you feel rejuvenated, check out the Mardi Gras mini float, listen to live music, and then get your headshot taken in our Career Center. For after hours exploration, see "Way Down Yonder: A New Orleans Travel Guide" from Endocrine News.
