Researchers will delve into the latest research in diabetes, obesity, reproductive health and other aspects of endocrinology during the Endocrine Society's ENDO 2023 news conferences June 15-18.
The Society also will share its Hormones and Aging Scientific Statement publicly for the first time during a news conference on Friday, June 16. Reporters will have an opportunity to hear from members of the writing group that drafted the statement on the research landscape.
Other press conferences will feature select abstracts that are being presented at ENDO 2023, the Endocrine Society's annual meeting. The event is being held at McCormick Place in Chicago, Ill. News conferences will be livestreamed for those who are unable to attend in person.
