Dear Dr. Avila:

"On behalf of the Endocrine Society, thank you for considering our comments on research opportunities related to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) scientific workshop on gender-affirming care for transgender and gender-diverse populations. Founded in 1916, the Endocrine Society represents over 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 evidence-based care for vulnerable populations including transgender individuals and other sexual and gender minority (SGM) populations."
