This interactive symposium reviews gaps in current hypoparathyroidism management, and explore new/emerging options and how they can help overcome current barriers to successful management.

This course was a virtual live CME-certified Ancillary Symposium developed in collaboration with our partner - Medscape, LLC to be presented at ENDO 2021. This educational activity is supported by an independent medical educational grant from Ascendis Pharma. This ancillary symposium is developed through the Endocrine Society’s Special Programs Committee (SPC).

Upon successful completion these educational sessions, participants should be better able to describe:
  • Current state of the art and gaps in management of hypoparathyroidism.
  • Emerging treatments for the management of hypoparathyroidism.
  • Patient education strategies and pearls related to hypoparathyroidism.
  • Effective patient education related to hypoparathyroidism management, especially given the recent recall of PTH 1-84.
