Next BES meeting

Because the restrictions imposed by the corona pandemic do not allow the normal two day format of our yearly meeting in La Hulpe (with a lot of social interaction),  the board has decided to limit the 2020 BES meeting to the presentations of the different prize winners.  

Pieter Gillard, the laureate of the Belgian Endocrine Society Lecture Award  (sponsored by Novo Nordisk) and Clara Depommier, the first author of the Selected Belgian Paper Award (sponsored by Sandoz) will present their work during a life stream on Saturday morning October 17th, from the Pentalfa Auditorium on campus Gasthuisberg – KUL (building Onderwijs & Navorsing 1 Herestraat 49 , 3000 Leuven).
This webinar will start with the oral communications by the 5 Young investigator award winners and the presentation of two clinical cases by endocrinologists in training  (sponsored by Pfizer).

The program of the meeting can be found here.

You can now register for the webinar (accreditation is requested) using this link.
