In 1972, Dr. Kilo and Dr. Joseph Williamson, Professor of Pathology, founded the Kilo Diabetes and Vascular Disease Research Foundation to raise money to support a research laboratory, education programs, and patient care at Washington University. Research at the Kilo Laboratory has contributed significantly to the understanding of how diabetes affects the body organs and to the development of medications and treatments that prevent microvascular, macrovascular and neurological complications. Drs. Kilo and Williamson were among the first to show that high levels of blood sugars were primarily responsible for the complications of diabetes and that control of blood sugar levels, high blood pressure and blood fats through diet, exercise and medications could delay or prevent complications.

Disclaimer The material presented during AACE scientific sessions is being made available by AACE for educational purposes only, and does not necessarily represent the only or best method or procedure appropriate for the medical situations discussed. Although AACE has peer reviewed the presentations, the opinions and views expressed represent the opinions of the presenters and not necessarily those of AACE or its governing body. Therefore, AACE disclaims any and all liability for injury or other damages resulting to an individual attending this meeting or to any third party for claims based upon the use of techniques and/or products presented by any party at this meeting. Workshop and Meet the Expert Registration An excellent variety of Workshop and Meet the Expert (MTE) topics are offered on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Please see the registration form for complete listings. All Workshops and MTEs run concurrently during each time slot so it is only possible to register for one during each session. Be sure to indicate your top choice for each session on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Registration for each Workshop and MTE is limited. While tickets are not issued for these sessions, seating is first come, first served, so advance registration is imperative to ensure that appropriate meeting space is selected to accommodate attendees. Additionally, city codes and fire regulations restrict the maximum occupancy in each session room. Your advance registration for these sessions is greatly appreciated to assist in meeting these important planning needs. Changes in your workshop and/or MTE selections can be made prior to the meeting by going online to am.aace.com or contacting QMS at 678-341-3074. Satellite Symposia Registration Advance registration is required for the scheduled satellite symposia. As with the Workshops and MTE sessions, this is necessary to ensure that appropriate meeting space and materials are provided to accommodate each symposium. Tickets will not be issued and seating will be provided on a first come, first served basis. Satellite symposia registration will open shortly and notification will be sent to all registered attendees. All individuals who have already registered for the Annual Meeting will be able to log on to am.aace.com to

add their satellite symposia selections to their existing meeting registration. Additionally, all AACE members will be sent individual brochures for each satellite symposium with specific session information, faculty listing and credit designation. All brochures will also include information on how to add that satellite symposium to an existing Annual Meeting registration. Advance Registration for Meal Functions AACE must provide a guaranteed number of people for each meal function in advance and is required to pay for that number. AACE only guarantees for the number of people who specifically register for each meal in advance. In section D of enclosed registration form, please indicate each food function you will attend, as it may not be possible to register (due to seating and food limitations) for the function when you arrive at the meeting. Tickets will be required for these events. If you have a special request, kosher or vegetarian meal, please indicate this on the registration form. AACE will make every effort to fulfill your dietary request. However, we cannot guarantee your request will be available at all times. Please note the functions that are not open to spouses or guests. College Fellow Candidates Material Material and instructions for College Fellow Candidates being inducted at the Convocation on Saturday evening will be distributed at the AACE Registration Desk beginning at 9:00 am on Wednesday, April 13. Approved applicants for Fellowship will receive detailed information in a separate mailing. Conference Recordings IntelliQuest Media, Inc. will offer audio recordings of general sessions, workshops and satellite symposia. Recordings are available on DVD-ROM.
