Country Associates

We are fortunate to have the collaboration of a group of physicians from around the world who are helping to bring  to the attention of endocrinologists in their home country. Our COUNTRY ASSOCIATES develop one or more demonstrations of ENDOTEXT at national or regional meetings each year. They report their activities (ideally photographs or other material) to the CA UNIT Director, Dr Federico Hawkins Carranza:, MD-   or Kenneth Feingold MD ( every 6-12 months. Activities might include:
1-demomstrations of ENDOTEXT.ORG  at national or regional endocrine meetings,
2-provide information on access to ENDOTEXT,
3-giving talks about ENDOTEXT and passing out information at their institution
4-contacting medical libraries, medical societies, or Med Student organizations about availability
5-and in any way possible "spreading the word" about our FREE Web Endocrine textbook.
We are deeply grateful for their efforts, and hope that in time ENDOTEXT  will be available and used by all Doctors around the world caring for patients with Endocrine Diseases.
