Our Goal

To improve and protect access to care for transgender patients.

Why We Care


Transgender patients often rely on endocrinologists as important members of their care team. The Endocrine Society advocates for developing evidence-based policies for transgender patients, protecting their access to care, and better funding and research to address transgender health gaps.
