NEW - Urge Congress to Provide Emergency Funding For NIDDK COVID-19-Related Research>>

The Endocrine Society wants to ensure that the National Institute for Diabetes, Digestive, and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) receives emergency funding to support COVID-19-related research. Without additional funding, NIDDK will not have the capacity to continue adequately supporting existing research projects while also undertaking new research on COVID-related complications and comorbidities that will be critical both for disease mitigation and the development of safe and effective treatments and vaccines.

As Congress works on further legislation to address the COVID-19 crisis, urge your Representative and Senators to include supplemental emergency funding in their next relief package.

Womens HealthOn January 14, the Endocrine Society was proud to host a briefing on Capitol Hill to celebrate Women’s Health Research Day, women researchers, and advances in women’s health research.

Teresa Woodruff and Hadine Joffe and Director of the National Institutes of Health Office of Research on Women’s Health Dr. Janine Austin Clayton. 

Share your support for women’s health research and ask your Representative and Senators to continue to support increased research funding for the National Institutes of Health and the inclusion of sex and gender as a biological variable in research.

Advocacy in the EU

EU FlagThe European Commission has launched initial steps towards developing a comprehensive strategy, but additional pressure is needed to ensure that it follows through on this important effort. With the election of a new European Parliament, we have an opportunity to raise the profile of EDCs and ensure that the Parliament prioritizes this issue throughout their 5-year term from 2019-2024.

Urge your EU Parliamentary Representative to prioritize science-based regulation of EDCs today!
