Objectives : This seminar will provide a working knowledge of common endocrinological problems.

Upon completion, participants should be able to recognize the signs and symptoms of most endocrinopathies; educate their patients regarding the basic concepts and natural history of these diseases and participate with their patients and consulting endocrinologists in decisions regarding modern disease therapy and prevention.

San Juan, Puerto Rico - In days of yore, the waters near Puerto Rico teemed with pirate ships commanded by the likes of Sir Francis Drake. Aye, they are long gone, but in their wake they have left an island of national treasures: La Casa Blanca, built in 1501 for the island's first governor, Ponce de Leon; the cobblestone streets of Old San Juan; the tropical rain forests of El Yunque.
