Join us for our Daily Meeting Highlights – AACE 2011 Conference – Day 3.

Day 3 of the meeting featured the announcement of poster winners and a presentation from some of the winning authors. This year there was a record number of poster abstracts submitted.

Troy Dillard, MD, won the first place for oral presentation, with his study investigating the potential benefits of omentectomy when added to laparoscopic rouxeny gastric bypass surgery. The omentum is part of intra-abdominal fat, which contributes to the risk of cardiometabolic disease.

Another highlight of the day was the swearing-in of the new AACE President, Yehuda Handelsman, MD.

Check back tomorrow for AACE 2011 Conference Daily Meeting Highlights – Day 4.
