PES Conflict of Interest Statement

The PES Board, by means of special COI target working group, has properly investigated and verified the Societys method to uncovering and managing potential COI. A basic supposition is that PES looks coperative relationships with industry to be apprehensible to Society mission, and is related to arrange these relationships in responsible and ethical manner. The PES is also plighted to Society leadership and its performance that is objective and unweighted by conflicts of interest (COI).

We are especially thankful to go out to members of the COI task force Leona Cuttler, Scott Rivkees, Ericka Eugster, Paul Kaplowitz, and Wilma Rossi for their expert and insightful work.

Pediatric Endocrine Society

Formerly Named in Honor of Lawson Wilkins

In order for the Society to understand its Vision, the Society will strive to achieve the following Critical Conditions for Success over the coming years:

  • The Society carries out maintaining and encouraging investigation that enhances children and adolescents with endocrine disorders health.
  • Optimal children and adolescents with endocrine disorders care is financially endurable and professionally fulfilling.
  • Number and quality of new pediatric endocrinologists is enough to provide the highest level of patient care and profession viability.
  • Educational programs of the Society ensure participants to be authorities on timely basic and clinical science and practice-based knowledge of pediatric endocrinology
  • The Society offers mechanisms that ensure participants to readily cooperate with other participants to achieve professional aims.
  • The Society plays a important role in policy-making that promotes investigation, clinical care, reimbursement, and education in pediatric endocrinology
  • The Society obtains sources mandatory to realize all these Critical Conditions for Success.

The Society has rearranged its internal committee composition and gathered a team of skilled association runnig professionals to help Society and its participants to meet these challenging Strategic Objectives. The participants overwhelmingly voted to change name in order that PES might more easily be determined by other professional societies, governmental agencies, industry manufacturers and parents.

Our new site is under development and will be ready by July 2013.
