AACE is a more inclusive, personalized experience – connecting individuals in conversations and learning across shared interests, locations, and backgrounds – and giving each AACE member a voice. The American Association of Clinical Endocrinology (AACE) is also committed to bringing the AACE global initiative to life with regional audiences by working to expand our educational offerings to destinations around the world, with live AACE events occurring regionally throughout countries beyond the United States. Through these events, attendees will be able to meet AACE experts, learn the latest in clinical endocrinology, and network with AACE community members in their area.

Since its inception, AACE MENA successfully made its mark in the Middle East and North Africa region and continues to build a vibrant community of endocrinologists and other related professions who supports AACE’s mission and brand. Our premier educational offerings aim to gather international and regional clinical endocrinology experts to facilitate knowledge transfer, turn a spotlight on emerging opportunities and challenges in the MENA region, and encourage discourse on hot topics in the field. AACE MENA expands our expertise on a regional level by elevating the practice of clinical endocrinology.
