Our Goal

To improve policies that affect endocrine scientists and the conduct of research.

Why We Care

Endocrine researchers study complex biological systems and hormonal pathways that affect all parts of the human body with implications for numerous diseases and conditions.  The Endocrine Society works with the federal government, research funding agencies, and regulatory bodies to advance progress in biomedical research and the ensure that the latest findings from endocrine scientists are incorporated into research strategic plans.

Take Action

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.

Join our campaign and welcome your new member of Congress today!

If you have any trouble navigating our advocacy software, please refer to our Contact Congress guide.
