The 2019 Annual Endocrine Society of Australia Seminar at The Westin, Perth from the 3rd-5th May 2019 was our best conference yet!
We were delighted to have Prof Shalendar Bhasin from Harvard Medical School as our Plenary Speaker at the 2019 Seminar. Prof Bhasin delivered two plenary presentations at the meeting including 'Testosterone therapy in older men: the lessons learned from the Testosterone Trials' & 'The dual epidemics of body image disorders and anabolic steroid abuse among young men'. In addition, there were sessions given by Australian experts on the following themes:
• Fertility for endocrinologists
• Clinical-laboratory interface (assay interference, testosterone, primary aldosteronism)
• Female sex hormones
• Hot topics (including thyroid)
• Clinical case discussion
• Diabetes and hypoglycaemia
