As we see COVID-19 cases increasing across the country this week, we know that elective surgeries are once again being affected. From everything we hear, the pandemic will be with us well into the fall and winter, continuing to complicate endometriosis care for all.
We know it’s challenging rescheduling doctor appointments, operations, and IVF treatments. From acupuncture and massage therapies to many other alternative and complementary therapies for endometriosis, it’s been difficult to set a regular schedule to manage your pain.
We began our weekly Wellness Workshop Series last month to share support and pain management practices with you. The workshops provide workouts, tips, and classes to build community and raise spirits. We will be continuing the program, so please let us know what you’d like to see added, and of course, if you’d like to offer a class.
This week, EndoFound welcomes Melissa Boudreau to the new position of Marketing Director & Outreach Coordinator. Melissa is an endo patient advocate, and you may know her from her dedicated volunteer work for EndoFound and her podcast, The Cycle. Welcome, Melissa!
Finally, we’re spotlighting two inspirational endo advocates this week: The Endo Educator Samantha Denäe and political commentator Ashley Pratte. Thank you both for the hard work you’ve been doing for the endo community.
As we increase our resources to support both endometriosis patients and those offering care for endo patients during these unprecedented times, we’d like to hear from you. EndoFound is most effective when we listen, reach out to our community, and implement solutions. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Have a healthy and safe Fourth of July, and be well.
Executive Director, EndoFound
