Statement for the Ad Hoc Open-Ended Working Group

May 26, 2022

Dear Government Delegates,

"My name is Leonardo Trasande. I am a practicing pediatrician and epidemiologist at New York University’s Grossman School of Medicine. I am speaking here today on behalf of the Endocrine Society, the world’s oldest, largest, and most active organization devoted to research on hormones and the clinical practice of endocrinology. Its membership consists of over 18,000 scientists, physicians, educators, nurses, and students in more than 100 countries.

The Endocrine Society has led the scientific community in describing the effects of synthetic chemicals on our hormones, our natural signaling molecules which underlie basic biological functions such as temperature, metabolism, salt, sugar and even sex."
