Endocrine Society Letter to UT Southwestern

December 03, 2021

Dear Drs. Podolsky, Warner, and Skapek:
"On behalf of the Endocrine Society, I am writing to share our concern about UT Southwestern's recent decision to deny gender-affirming treatment for new patients at the Children’s Medical Center in Dallas and to disband the GENder Education and Care Interdisciplinary Support (GENECIS) program. We are deeply concerned that these decisions will block access to medical care for transgender youth. We urge you to reinstate the GENECIS program and allow new patients to receive coordinated gender-affirming care at UT Southwestern. Without access to the GENECIS program, new patients will likely have to seek care in other states and wait longer for medical appointments; some will not be able to obtain the care they need."
