Endometriosis Foundation of America: An Online Patient Community
Write to Your Rep to Support Critical Endometriosis Research & Funding!

We are excited to have the Congressional Endometriosis Caucus, led by Reps. Scott (GA), Williams (GA), Rice (NY), and Gonzalez-Colon (PR), circulating a “Dear Colleague” letter in the US House of Representatives asking their colleagues to join them in requesting the inclusion of important endometriosis research and funding in the FY23 Congressional Appropriations Bills. This is a critical time for the endometriosis patient and advocate community to reach out to your US House Members and urge them to support the Congressional Endometriosis Caucuses’ effort. We only have until Monday, April 25 to get as many US House Members signed on to this letter as possible—and we could use your help. Please use the attached email template to write to your Member of Congress as soon as you can! And to learn more about UpEndo, please visit this page.
