Pediatric Endocrine Society Statement Against Public Discourse that Risks the Well-being of Transgender and Gender Diverse Youth and their Families

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.

PES Leadership Advantage Session

We are happy to announce that Early Bird Registration for the 2020 PES Leadership Advantage Workshop - INFLUENCE - is now available!

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:

PES Leadership Advantage provides physician leaders with the core skills key to becoming impactful voices at the leadership table.  Offered in a blended learning setting centered around a live workshop, a learning module is offered annually as a pre-conference benefit to PES members. PES Leadership Advantage enhances three overarching areas of high performance:  Leadership Fundamentals, Leading & Influencing Others,and Navigating & Guiding Your Enterprise.  Four separate modules: Influence, Engage, Inspire and Envision comprise the 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.

The Influence module will explore:

  • Understanding Yourself as a Leader:  Operating with Emotional Intelligence
  • Managing Your Time & Delegating Effectively
  • Delivering Powerful Feedback & Managing through Conflict 

The modules, tailored specifically to physician leaders in pediatric endocrinology, consist of: 1) pre-work to set a foundation in proven leadership concepts and models, 2) a live workshop to explore and practice applying these skills in the real-world setting, and 3) a live, post-workshop webinar to assure the new techniques are becoming a real part of the leader’s toolkit.
Physician Leaders who complete all four modules will achieve a Certificate in Leadership from the Pediatric Endocrine Society & The Malone Group. Keep in mind, the modules are non-sequential, so they may be completed in any order! The workshop will take place on Thursday, April 23rd.

If you are a continuing participant, you can register here:

Announcing The 2020 PES Leadership Advantage Session

Since 2015 the PES Leadership Advantage Program has been providing our members with the foundational skills important to becoming an impactful voice at the leadership table.  Designed as a series of four dynamic workshops, one of the sessions is offered annually as a pre-conference benefit.   PES Leadership Advantage enhances three overarching areas of high performance:  Leadership Fundamentals, Leading & Influencing Others, and Navigating & Guiding Your Enterprise.  The four modules are:  InfluenceEngageInspire and Envision.  In 2019 we completed the initial cycle of the four modules.  So, at the 2020 conference in Fort Worth we will start the cycle again with the offering of Influence. Since the modules are non-sequential, they may be completed in any order!

Influence focuses on the core skill areas of:

  • Operating with Emotional Intelligence
  • Managing Your Time & Delegating Effectively
  • Delivering Powerful Feedback & Managing Through Conflict

Each PES-tailored module design includes:
  • pre-work assignments to set a foundation for theory and concepts, and completion of assessment instruments to allow for self-reflection
  • the live workshop that focuses on real-world practice and application, and
  • a post-workshop ‘virtual follow-up’ to help sustain learning and to provide further coaching.


Physician Leaders who complete all four modules will achieve a certificate in leadership from the Pediatric Endocrine Society.

Please save the date of Thursday, April 23rd to participate with your peers in the Influence Module of PES Leadership Advantage.  Please note we have moved the workshop to a Thursday to reduce interruptions and conflicts. More details will be provided as early bird registration begins in early-October with discounted pricing for both new and returning participants.
