Monday's pick of the day
The first day of BES 2014 kicks off with a host of varied, topical symposia, clinical management workshops, and an applied physiology workshop. Look out for our first education workshop at 15.45, room 3B Teaching and learning in endocrinology. Make sure you catch Peter Taylor’s talk at 13.45, room 1A on the link between low thyroid hormone levels and a genetic variant, and the development of low IQ. The work is covered today in news stories in the Telegraph, BBC and Mail online. The abstract is the Clinical Endocrinology Trust top-scoring clinical abstract. We are grateful to our industry supporters who have enabled us to bring you four satellite symposia. The first two: Vitamin D – the Dark Truth, sponsored by Internis takes place at 12.45, room 1C and Cushing’s syndrome and adrenocortical carcinoma management: are we making progress?, sponsored by HRA Pharma at the same time in room 1B. At 17.25 in room 1A, come and support our Young Endocrinologists’ Prize Lectures. Following the Welcome Reception, our YE’s are set for an evening of fun and trivia at the Young Endocrinologists’ social evening and quiz from 20.15. Tickets are free, but must be pre-booked.
