Announcing the 2022 Bipartisan Endometriosis CARE Act 

We’re thrilled to be working with the House Endometriosis Caucus and Representatives Lauren Underwood (IL-14), Nikema Williams (GA-05), Jenniffer González-Colón (PR-At Large), and Alma Adams (NC-12) who introduced the bipartisan Endometriosis CARE Act. This legislation would fund investments needed to advance endometriosis research, develop and expand access to treatments, and promote public awareness. As our Co-Founder Padma Lakshmi says, "Thank you to Representatives Lauren Underwood and Nikema Williams and the House Endometriosis Caucus for creating the Endometriosis CARE Act and carrying forward this long-overdue correction to how we regard women's reproductive health issues." You can find more information about the Endometriosis CARE Act of 2022 here, as well as the bill here.
