MESSAGE FROM SCIENTIFIC CHAIRMAN

"Translating advances into best practices"

Medical knowledge is advancing faster than ever before and this is true with the endocrinology as it is with all other specialties in medicine. Access to this knowledge can sometimes be as simple as a click of a button on Google, but we do have to ask ourselves: How useful is this new knowledge? Is it truly an advancement in terms of patient care? How do we integrate this new knowledge into existing practice? How do we apply this new knowledge to achieve the best patient outcomes?

It is with these questions in mind that the scientific committee for MAC 8 has come up with the theme of "Translating advances into best practices" and a scientific program that truly reflects this theme. The emphasis of this meeting will not just be on disseminating knowledge but providing meaningful perspectives on this knowledge from experts in their respective fields. Each speaker has been chosen not just because of their expertise but also their ability to communicate and teach effectively.

So save the date! Cancel your clinics! Book your flights! Ask your spouses for permission! We look forward to welcoming you to what is shaping up to be the biggest MAC ever!
