Dear Dr. Parker,

"On behalf of the Endocrine Society, thank you for considering our comments on the research opportunities and operational activities related to the National Institutes of Health’s (NIH) Strategic Plan to Advance Research on the Health and Well-Being of Sexual & Gender Minorities Fiscal Years 2021-2025. Founded in 1916, the Endocrine Society represents approximately 18,000 physicians and scientists engaged in the treatment and research of endocrine disorders, such as diabetes, hypertension, infertility, obesity, osteoporosis, and thyroid disease. Our members also include scientists and physicians who are advancing our understanding of, and improving care for vulnerable populations including transgender individuals and other sexual and gender minority (SGM) populations.

Through our advocacy and education, the Society strives to ensure that transgender individuals have access to science-based health care services provided by clinicians who appreciate their unique needs."
