This prestigious occasion will reunite the world's Pediatric Endocrinology Societies, including the host Pediatric Endocrine Society (PES), European Society for Paediatric Endocrinology (ESPE), Australasian Paediatric Endocrine Group (APEG), Asia Pacific Paediatric Endocrine Society (APPES), African Society for Paediatric and Adolescent Endocrinology (ASPAE), Japanese Society for Pediatric Endocrinology (JSPE), and the Sociedad Latinoamericana de Endocrinología Pediátrica (SLEP). This meeting continues a tradition of Joint Meetings of Pediatric Endocrinology, initiated in 1981, appropriately updated for 2017 to "International Meeting" to highlight the truly worldwide community of our specialty.
The 10th meeting will offer a broad and stimulating array of plenary lectures, symposia, and meet-the-expert sessions that address the very latest advances, challenges, and controversies in the field of pediatric endocrinology, prepared by the 2017 International Program Organizing Committee comprised of respected representatives from all of the participating Societies. My co-Chair Dr. Mitchell Geffner, PES colleagues and I keenly anticipate the opportunity to welcome you to the beautiful city of Washington DC, home to countless fascinating museums, monuments, and historical treasures. Easy access to all that Washington DC has to offer via the accessible and extensive metro system makes the location of this meeting a perfect opportunity to combine professional education with an unforgettable personal and family holiday.
