Womens Health

Our Goal: To improve and protect access to care for women.

Why We Care

Endocrinologists are important members of the care team for women as much of their care is focused on ensuring the correct balance of hormones. The Endocrine Society advocates for improving and protecting access to care for women by pushing for evidence-based policies and advocating for better funding and research to address gaps in endocrine health.

Rock Stars of Research: Scientists Who Are Shaping The Future of Women's Health Care 

On January 14, the Endocrine Society was proud to host a briefing on Capitol Hill to celebrate Women’s Health Research Day, women researchers, and advances in women’s health research. 
 
During our briefing, lawmakers and congressional staff heard about opportunities to advance women’s health and the importance of sex and gender inclusion in research from Endocrine Society members Drs. Teresa Woodruff and Hadine Joffe, and Director of the National Institutes of Health Office of Research on Women’s Health Dr. Janine Austin Clayton. Further details of the event can be found in a recent Research!America newsletter highlighting the briefing.
