SITE LEADERS' MESSAGE

Everyone is impacted by hormones. Despite their role in the body; however, they are an overlooked and underestimated aspect of health in many different aspects. The stigmatization and underappreciation of hormones is important to understand because they have been tied to some of the most important healthcare services in the past 100 years, like hormone therapy for transgender indivduals and birth control options for women. Furthermore, hormones play a vital role in the lives of our youth, as they often misunderstand their bodies, sexual changes, and hormones in general.
