Past Events

Networking Event - Adapting in a Pandemic:  Challenges and Lessons Learned Networking Event at ENDO 2021 

Date: March 22, 2021

Co-Chairs: Lauren Fishbein, MD, PhD, Niki Karavitaki, MSc, PhD, FRCP 

Join the Adrenal/Pituitary Special Interest Group for small group discussions about the challenging and illuminating experiences we have all shared since the outbreak of COVID-19. This event will feature networking breakout sessions based on clinical and basic science interests. Attendees with adrenal and pituitary expertise will have the opportunity to discuss the new normal during the pandemic. Clinical discussions will cover topics such as adapting to telehealth, tele-education, and virtual labs. The research discussion will highlight issues including adapting to research life when facing new challenges including closed labs, limited opening of labs and clinical trials, writing papers/grants remotely, and teaching in the virtual world. In addition to considerations of the new difficulties presented, we will also share lessons learned and positive byproducts of working virtually. Bring your new knowledge and experiences for this unique opportunity to network with other adrenal and pituitary experts.

The Paper That Changed My Practice

This webinar promoted critical review of published literature on adrenal and pituitary conditions and highlight publications which, according to the presenters, have impacted their clinical practice. It also enhanced knowledge and generated productive discussion on the topics covered, including:

  • the cardiovascular risk and mortality in patients with adrenal incidentaloma which is non-secreting or is associated with subclinical Cushing's;
  • the significance of ARMC5 gene defects in primary aldosteronism in clinical practice;
  • the consequences of Cushing's disease on long-term mortality and adjusting the approach in the long-term follow-up of these patients; and
  • the management options of thyrotropin-secreting pituitary adenomas.
