Endocrine Society’s new Scientific Statement identifies research gaps in pediatric, LGBTQIA care


This Scientific Statement expands the Society’s 2012 statement by focusing on endocrine disease disparities in the pediatric and sexual and gender minoritized populations. These include pediatric and adult lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex and asexual (LGBTQIA) people. The writing group focused on prevalent conditions such as growth disorders, puberty disorders, bone conditions, diabetes and obesity.

“I am thrilled to see the Endocrine Society’s commitment to equitable health care with this broadened Scientific Statement,” said first author Alicia M. Diaz-Thomas, M.D., M.P.H., pediatric endocrinologist at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center in Memphis, Tenn.
