ESE presents its White Paper “Hormones in European Health Policies: How endocrinologists can contribute towards a healthier Europe”
On May 4th, we organised a webinar to present our new White Paper on endocrinology, titled “Hormones in European Health Policies: How endocrinologists can contribute towards a healthier Europe”.
With this White Paper, we call on all policy makers in Europe, including the EU institutions and national governments across Europe, to recognise the importance of endocrinology in all EU and national health policies.
The four chapters of the White Paper set out four key priority areas that are having some of the biggest effects on societal health today – obesity, rare diseases, cancer, and Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals (EDCs). There are many more important topics for endocrinology – the prevention, diagnosis and interdisciplinary care of diabetes, avoiding osteoporosis and ensuring general bone health, vitamin D and iodine deficiencies as well as thyroid health, to name a few. While all endocrine diseases deserve heightened attention, the four priority areas have been chosen as they are among the most pressing at this point in time.
