MESSAGE from the Presidents

”The International Society of Endocrinology is excited to support and partner with the Sri Lanka College of Endocrinologists (SLENDO) and the South Asian Federation of Endocrine Societies (SAFES) for this edition of the SAFES Congress, taking place in the beautiful “city of light” Colombo, Sri Lanka on August 1-3 2019.

ISE's mission is to provide optimised lifelong health for people with endocrine disorders on a global scale through education and training, promoting international exchanges and supporting the young generation. We are proud to offer a genuinely enriching and professional exchange of knowledge with world-renowned endocrinologists who will be attending the conference, and to enable increased international exchanges for early career researchers. We will be supporting South Asian award winners from this event with travel grants at our flagship event, the International Congress of Endocrinology that will take place in Buenos Aires Argentina in 2020.

This congress will be a unique opportunity for the South Asian community to connect with the international endocrine community to explore and understand the critical importance and global impact of endocrinology, as well as issues across the South Asian region.

I look forward to meeting you in Colombo,”

André Lacroix, ISE Chairperson
