Endocrinology is a branch of biology and medicine dealing with the endocrine system, its diseases, and its specific secretions known as hormones. It is also concerned with the integration of developmental events proliferation, growth, and differentiation, and the psychological or behavioral activities of metabolism, growth and development, tissue function, sleep, digestion, respiration, excretion, mood, stress, lactation, movement, reproduction, and sensory perception caused by hormones. Specializations include behavioral endocrinology and comparative endocrinology. The endocrine system consists of several glands, all in different parts of the body, that secrete hormones directly into the blood rather than into a duct system. Hormones have many different functions and modes of action; one hormone may have several effects on different target organs, and, conversely, one target organ may be affected by more than one hormone.
Dr. Bonar attributes her professional success to her mother. Her philanthropic interests include the WW2 Museum in New Orleans, the US Holocaust Museum in Washington DC, American Diabetes Association, and the Anchorage community Concert Band. On her down time she enjoys Swimming, Dancing, Skiing, and Playing Various Musical Instruments.
