Healthcare Policy and Advocacy

Improving policies that affect the profession of endocrinology and patients affected by endocrine conditions

Our Priorities

Access to Care

Endocrinologists and their patients often must navigate a complicated and increasingly expensive healthcare system to receive adequate care. The Endocrine Society is committed to continuing to advocate for affordable healthcare, health supplies, and endocrine-related treatments for all Americans. Learn more...


Diabetes

Endocrinologists are often on the frontlines of the all-consuming, complex diabetes public health crisis. The Endocrine Society works to make a positive difference in the lives of patients with diabetes, and advocates for access to affordable care and diabetes supplies, and better funding for research focused on diabetes and its comorbidities.

Women's Health

Endocrinologists are important members of the care team for women as much of their care is focused on ensuring the correct balance of hormones. The Endocrine Society advocates for improving and protecting access to care for women by pushing for evidence-based policies and advocating for better funding and research to address gaps in endocrine health.
