I-DSD/I-CAH news alert - May 2017

I-DSD/I-CAH news alert

A monthly news alert is being launched in May with the aim of keeping the members of the I-DSD/I-CAH community informed about the latest news and highlights regarding the I-DSD & I-CAH registries and other associated activities.

Why am I receiving this?

Recipients of this news alert have been compiled from I-DSD/I-CAH registry users, I-DSD symposium participants, DSD and CAH networks and other interested parties.  You can unsubscribe from this list at any time.

I-DSD symposium

115 abstracts were submitted for the Copenhagen symposium.  From them, 10 long orals and 14 short oral presentations have been selected for the two Oral Communications sessions.  The full running order has been incorporated into the programme which is available on the symposium website (www.gla.ac.uk/idsdsymposium).  The remaining abstracts were selected for poster presentation.  Prizes are available for the best and runner up in all 3 presentation categories.  Up to 15 EAC-CME credits.
