Why are you interested in attending ENDO 2022? 
The Endocrine Society Annual meeting is the perfect place to gain access to cutting edge scientific and clinical knowledge. It is also a good place to start and foster collaborations with international colleagues.

As a previous ENDO attendee, what is your fondest memory of the annual meeting? 
One of many good memories from ENDO Annual meetings was when gave my first oral presentation as a medical student at ENDO 2009 in Washington DC, US.

Would you recommend the ENDO Annual Meeting to a friend or colleague? If so, please explain.
I would recommend the ENDO Annual Meeting to everyone that has an interest in endocrinology. 

If you could create an ENDO event, session, or activity, what would it be? 
I would like to combine a Meet the Professor session with an oral presentation session. This would enable an expert in the field to set the scene before the presentation of an abstract with cutting edge science. 

From your perspective, what are the advantages of a virtual annual meeting? 
Of course, nothing can beat the real live experience of being at ENDO, but the possibility of attending this important meeting virtually is allowing people across the globe to attend and gain valuable knowledge during the pandemic.
