Hello. My name is Lynette Nieman, and I am the incoming president of the Endocrine Society. I am here to talk to you about the Endocrine Society's partnership in the March for Science, which is going to be held in Washington, DC, on April 22, which many of you know is Earth Day.

This march is designed to bring together people who are interested in all types of science and to show how important science is to our society as a whole. Science is important not only for clinical care of our patients, families, and friends, but also for research which forms the next generation of patient care, management, and treatment. The Endocrine Society feels that it is very important to be there; to stand up for science, our patients, and our investigators; and to march with other disciplines in solidarity.

We have information about the march on our website. There are instructions on how to participate in an advocacy campaign by writing to your member of Congress, if you are an American, or to leaders in your country to express your support for science and for everything that scientists and physicians do for their communities. If you happen to be at the convention, look for a little card with "Endocrine.org/MarchforScience."

We hope that everybody will join us who can, and we are opening our offices for hospitality.

The march is going to be held in more than 400 other cities around the world, and we anticipate that there will be a wonderful turnout. We will show that all of us care not only for the Earth, but for science and all it brings to everyone.

One last note: The Endocrine Society is selling wonderful T-shirts which you can purchase on our website to wear at the march or at any other time. Just show your support for science.

Thank you very much. We hope to see you at the march.
