Endocrinology Advocacy

Not all topics of relevance to endocrinologists are about specific conditions and diseases. Sometimes, doctors need information about changes in the medical field or the field of endocrinology. Changes to medical insurance legislation, drug trial regulations and even patient privacy legislation all impact a practitioner’s way of doing business and practicing medicine. Yet keeping track of these details is not always easy. That’s why Endocrine News has organized articles and news pieces on these topics into this advocacy page. Here, practitioners can find the information gathered by the Endocrine Society, a leading endocrinology advocacy organization, conveniently in one location.
