To ensure access to adequate and affordable healthcare.
Why We Care
Endocrinologists and their patients often must navigate a complicated and increasingly expensive healthcare system to receive adequate care. The Endocrine Society is committed to continuing to advocate for affordable healthcare, health supplies, and endocrine-related treatments for all Americans.
The new United States 116th Congress was sworn in on January 3, 2019. A new Congress presents an extraordinary opportunity for you to contact the new members of the Senate and the House of Representatives, offer your expertise as endocrinologists and/or researchers, and share what issues you and the Endocrine Society find important.
