Educating the next generation of medical professionals is essential to diagnosing and treating endometriosis. Yadira Ramos, a physician who suffers from endometriosis, highlights just how important it is in this week's Endo Story.
Research is key to diagnosing endometriosis sooner and by less invasive means. Read about researcher Dr. Katie Burns who received her diagnosis in college. After three surgeries and treatments to chemically induce menopause, tests for IBS/celiac disease, trips to pain clinics, hypnosis, acupuncture, radical diet changes, and more, she decided to become an endometriosis researcher.
These women are working to lessen the 7 to 10 year diagnosis delay. You can help, too. Now, more than ever, EndoFound is asking that you consider an end-of-year donation. We understand that many causes need your support, particularly during these challenging times. At any level, your contribution will change the lives of so many individuals. Thank you for helping us weather this storm and ensuring that we will emerge from this period a stronger community.
