The Endocrine Society, the world's largest and oldest professional organization of endocrinologists, will host an audioconference to review the recent Institute of Medicine (IOM) report, "Testosterone and Aging." The report evaluated the evidence for potential benefits and risks of treating elderly men with testosterone. Audioconference participants will explore the evidence for potential benefits and risks of testosterone treatment of elderly men and will hear the faculty's recommendations about how a physician should approach an elderly man who might be hypogonadal. An opportunity for questions and comments will be provided following faculty presentations. Participation in this audioconference is free and open to members of the press.
