Jerome W. Conn Alumni Society

The Jerome W. Conn Alumni Society is named in honor of the first chief of the Metabolism, Endocrinology & Diabetes Division. We are hopeful the Society will keep alumni of MEND engaged in our innovative research and education missions. Through annual events, members will be able to catch up with old friends, meet new peers, and spark intellectual discussions.

The Jerome W. Conn Alumni Society is open to past alums of the division, whether you were a fellow, faculty member, or graduate student. Annual membership dues are $100 and will directly support our Ralph Knopf Fellowship Fund. Our Fellowship Fund provides direct support to our current fellows to cover costs associated with attendance at national and international conferences, books, and supplies. Visit our Endocrinology Fellowship Program pages of our website to learn more about who you will be supporting by becoming a MEND Society member.

How to Pay Your Annual Dues (for existing members)

Annual membership dues directly support our Endowed Fellowship Fund. To pay your annual dues of $100, please visit Ralph Knopf Fellowship Fund online giving page.

How to Become a Member

You will need to complete our online membership form. After you complete the form and click submit, you will receive a confirmation email which will include a link to pay the $100 annual dues online which will directly support our Ralph Knopf Endowed Fellowship Fund. The fund will be utilized to specifically advance the educational efforts of our current MEND fellows including travel to conferences and presentations, an annual fellows lecture chosen by the current fellows, and books and software. Ultimately, the fund may allow us to support additional fellowship positions or help defray tuition debt for selected fellows.

Thank you for your support.
