The ‘Voice of Endocrinologists’ – And Others

AACE’s Omnipresence Crosses Specialties and Languages

ORLANDO, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#25thAACE–For 25 years, the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists
(AACE) has been known as the “Voice of Clinical Endocrinology,” and has
extended that voice to other endocrinology care providers, too.

On Friday, May 27, during the AACE 25th Annual Scientific &
Clinical Congress at the Rosen Shingle Creek Resort Orlando, two
separate in-depth symposium sessions reflect AACE’s pledge of broadening
its clinical voice and support across medical specialties and oceans.

A Practical Clinical Guide to Endocrine Diseases for Nurse
Practitioners/Physician Assistants,
co-chaired by W. Reid
Litchfield, MD and Sondra M. O’Callaghan, PA, MPH, CHES, highlights the
collaboration of physicians and nurse practitioners/physician assistants
working together for better screening, diagnosis and treatment of
endocrine-related conditions.

“AACE recognizes the growing trend of physician assistants and nurse
practitioners choosing the specialty of endocrinology to fill gaps in
care secondary to shortage of endocrinologists,” said O’Callaghan.
“While also recognizing the broad scope of endocrinology practiced by
PA/NPs, the goal is to ensure the best continuing medical education by
providing evidence-based sessions.”

Presented in Spanish, a joint session of AACE/Sociedad Mexicana
Nutricion y Endocrinologia (SMNE): Reflections and Future Directions in
Endocrinology,
co-Chaired by Myriam Allende-Vigo, MD and Miguel A.
Madero, MD, showcases AACE’s commitment to endocrine care across our
hemisphere.

“This is the eighth joint session of AACE/SMNE during the AACE Annual
Meetings,” said Dr. Allende-Vigo. “It shows AACE’s continuous dedication
in reaching its diverse membership, many of whom are native Spanish
speakers from Latin American countries.”

The co-chairs of both sessions will be available to discuss their
respective presentations during a press briefing on Friday, May 27,
beginning at 12:45 p.m., at the Rosen Shingle Creek Resort Orlando, St.
Johns Room 23.
