The PES has over 1300 members representing the multiple disciplines of Pediatric Endocrinology. The members are dedicated to research and treatment of children with endocrine disorders; reproductive, bone, thyroid, diabetes, obesity, growth, pituitary and adrenal. The Society works to promote the continuing education of its membership.
The PES is advocating for immediate changes to Medicaid, CHIP, and private insurers so that pediatric endocrine practices can provide and be paid for telehealth care services. A letter has been sent to Congress on behalf of the PES asking that all health insurance providers, including employer-sponsored plans regulated by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act and all Medicaid Managed Care Organizations, be required to modify their benefit, coverage and payment policies so that there is parity of reimbursement for virtual care options and in-person visits.
PES has been closely monitoring the rapidly increasing domestic and worldwide developments during the last several weeks, days, and even hours related to COVID-19. Between the fast-growing number of members’ institutions that have implemented travel bans, the President declaring this pandemic a National Emergency, and the city of Fort Worth declaring a Public Health emergency due to COVID-19, it is obvious that all these realities make it impossible to hold the 2020 PES Annual Meeting, originally scheduled for April 24-27, 2020 in Fort Worth, TX.
On October 29, 2019, the PES released the following statement given concerns of misinformation in the media and by some government officials regarding gender affirmative care. Certain legislators have threatened to introduce legislation which would ban use of puberty blockers in transgender youth younger than 18 years, which contradicts the PES supported Endocrine Society guidelines, as well as the guidelines of the American Academy of Pediatrics.
Our next PESLA workshop is only two months away! Four separate modules: Influence, Engage, Inspire and Envision comprise the entire PESLA program. The Influence Module (previously referred to as Module 1) was first offered in 2016 and will again be offered at the April 2020 Conference in Fort Worth. To provide some more insight into the upcoming session, we would like to provide a preview of the second topic in the Influence session: Managing your Time & Delegating Effectively.
Please note, this program is available to PES members only. If you would like to receive PES membership, you can do so by registering here: https://www.pedsendo.org/members/new_members/
As you grow professionally and demonstrate mastery of certain core skills, it only makes sense that you acquire more responsibilities. In addition to the amount, the nature of your responsibilities should also evolve as you elevate in your organization and/or field. Whereas your technical skills may have secured the beginning of your career, you will need to focus on different types of skills and responsibilities to define and prove yourself as an impactful leader. The way you distribute your time among varying tasks should change accordingly, and this shift is only possible through increased and effective delegation. Delegation helps save time for leaders, and it allows more work to be completed faster.
Understanding and strengthening your Time Management and Delegation will ensure YOU:
