Dear Dr. Mazure:

"The Endocrine Society is excited about the White House Initiative on Women’s Health Research, your leadership of the task force, and the opportunity to contribute to this important effort. 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. Our membership of over 18,000 includes leaders in the field of women’s health research, such as medical endocrinologists who treat patients with thyroid disease, osteoporosis, diabetes, and other diseases; reproductive endocrinologists who treat conditions like infertility, polycystic ovarian syndrome, and menopause; and basic scientists who study estrogen receptors and central mechanisms that control reproduction. Collectively, we are dedicated to improving women’s health through the application of scientific advancements to patient care."
