We are pleased to announce that Hiba Basheer, MD, our own 1st year fellow in the Division of Endocrinology, Diabetes & Metabolism at the University of Florida, has qualified for the Presidential Poster Competition at Endo 2016. This is the annual meeting for the Endocrine Society and is taking place this year in historic Boston, Massachusetts. The Presidential Poster Competition is an event where high-scoring trainees who are presenting-authors of a poster presentation compete amongst their peers. The competition is designed to award trainees for excellence in the field of endocrinology. Dr. Basheer’s abstract is on “Multiple Sclerosis in the Setting of Cushing’s Disease” and she is very excited and proud to have been accepted.
“I am extremely honored to receive the endocrine society’s outstanding abstract award and I am very proud to get the opportunity to represent UF and our endocrine division in such a big event. I would like to express my grateful to all of my seniors and attendings who were very generous and helpful, thank you all” – – Hiba
Judges will view her presentation and she will answer any questions posed. The winners will be notified the evening of the presentation and will be acknowledged the following day. We all want to congratulate Dr. Basheer and wish her the best!
