Endocrine Society Letter to SDOH Caucus

September 21, 2021

Dear Honorable Representatives Bustos, Butterfield, Cole, and Mullin,

"On behalf of the Endocrine Society, thank you for your attention to the issue of social determinants of health. Founded in 1916, the Endocrine society is the world’s oldest, largest, and most active organization devoted to research on hormones and the clinical practice of endocrinology. The Society’s membership of over 18,000 includes experts in all research and clinical aspects of hormone health, including diabetes, obesity, and endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs). Our members deal with the consequences of social determinants of health daily in the patients they see and in the research questions they study. Our Society is committed to and has prioritized health equity and, therefore, we are interested in the development of the Social Determinants of Health Caucus and hope to work together to improve health outcomes and maximize existing and future federal investments in health, food, housing, transportation, and other important social drivers of health outcomes."
