The 2021 Annual Meeting will be held in Birmingham

In these trying times, we’re happy to be able to bring you some good news. The 2021 AAES Annual Meeting will be held in Birmingham, Alabama, April 24-26, 2021. After much negotiation, we’ve been able to secure an arrangement with the local venues that is very favorable to the AAES and will help offset a portion of the revenue lost from having to cancel our meeting this year. We are humbled by all of our members who donated their registration fees from the 2020 cancelled meeting to help make up some of the deficit. With all of these efforts, the AAES is in a good position to continue to meet our goals of educating our members and advancing the cause of Endocrine Surgery on all fronts. We hope that you’ll be able to join us in Birmingham in 2021 where we will be bringing you all of the amazing programming that was scheduled for this year and more. From there, it’s on to Cleveland in 2022. We hope that you and your loved ones stay healthy and safe. We can’t wait to see everyone again soon.

Elective Endocrine Surgery During the COVID-19 Pandemic

COVID-19During this pandemic, many hospitals are postponing elective surgery in order to conserve resources. AAES leadership has outlined our thoughts as a group on what we think qualifies as urgent endocrine surgery (i.e. should be done within approximately 4 weeks given the current climate and being cognizant that there may be a delay of 2-3 months in rescheduling the procedure).

These thoughts are NOT meant to constitute a position statement, standard of care, or evidence-based/best practice guideline, but rather are the opinions of a selected group of surgeons.
