Society Testimony

Statement for ARPA-H August 3 Listening Session by Dr. Carol Wysham

August 03, 2021

"My name is Carol Wysham, and I am an endocrinologist at Rockwood/MultiCare Health Systems in Spokane, Washington, and Clinical Professor of Medicine at the University of Washington. As President of the Endocrine Society, thank you for the opportunity to discuss the ARPA-H proposal.

Endocrinology is an all-encompassing discipline that has impact on and influences the health of all of our organ systems and in the development of many of the chronic diseases that afflict our citizens. The Endocrine Society is the world’s oldest, largest, and most active organization of scientists and healthcare professionals dedicated to research on hormones and the clinical treatment of patients with endocrine-related diseases. Our field of medicine and research crosses boundaries and addresses priorities important to the NIH. As a clinician, and with relevance to the Institutes here today, I work with our members and the patients we serve on the frontlines of the complex diabetes public health crisis. I also conduct clinical research with the goal of preventing and managing cardiovascular complications in individuals with diabetes. However, Endocrine Society members also study the critical role of hormonal systems in reproductive biology and human development amongst many other medical disciplines."
