Hossein Gharib (MD) Educational Endowment Fund

The American College of Endocrinology (the College), the educational and scientific arm of the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists (AACE), is pleased to announce the launch of a campaign to fund the Hossein Gharib (MD) Educational Endowment fund, in honor of Hossein Gharib, MD, MACE in recognition of his outstanding contributions to clinical thyroidology.

Dr. Gharib has been an integral part of AACE, the College and their many programs for nearly two decades. His many distinguished roles include past President of AACE and the College as well as Dean of Endocrine University® since 2003. Throughout his career at the Mayo Clinic, as well as in his role at Endocrine University, Dr. Gharib has taught and mentored many. His clear passion for mentoring fellows and providing exceptional training and education in the field of clinical endocrinology make him the ideal honoree for the College’s first endowed fund. This educational endowment fund will be used to sponsor thyroid related medical education activities at various forums, such as the AACE Annual Scientific and Clinical Congress, AACE Chapter meetings, and/or other AACE sponsored medical education programs, including Endocrine University, that will enhance the impact of Dr. Gharib’s contributions to the field of endocrinology.

As a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, all gifts to the College are tax-deductible. No portion of donations received will be used for administrative or fund-raising purposes; all donations received will be used exclusively for future thyroid-relatedmedical educational lectures.
