Each year, the AACE Annual Meeting gives attendees a chance to build new and eventually, ongoing relationships with colleagues who have similar interests, and the 27th AACE Annual Scientific & Clinical Congress is no exception. It is an opportunity for like-minded thinkers and experts to come together for positive collaboration. The 27th AACE Annual Scientific & Clinical Congress is a meeting of influencers focused on being the change-makers for the future of endocrinology.
