    ASBMR is once again partnering with the Endocrine Fellows Foundation (EFF) to offer Young Investigators training in osteoporosis and other metabolic bone diseases a unique opportunity to participate in the Seventh Fellows Forum on Metabolic Bone Diseases. The Forum will be held one day prior to the ASBMR 2013 Annual Meeting on October 2-3, 2013 in Baltimore, MD, USA. Directors of Postdoctoral Subspecialty Training Programs for M.D.s, Pre- or Postdoctoral Ph.D. Fellowship Training Programs are invited to select individuals from their programs whose education, in their opinion, would be enhanced by participating in this Forum. The format of the day will include plenary lectures and breakout sessions given by distinguished leaders in the field.

    Selected North American attendees will be provided round-trip coach airfare; selected international attendees will be provided round-trip airfare up to $1,000 US. Hotel accommodations for the nights of October 2 and 3, 2013 at the Forum meeting hotel will also be provided. Extended stays to attend the ASBMR 2013 Annual Meeting on October 4-7 can be arranged and are highly encouraged. Fellows attending the Forum will be able to register at a special discounted rate: early-bird registration fees, until August 8th are $205. No more than one fellow per program will be selected; no more than two fellows from any institution will be selected.
