An Educational Event for School Nurses and Nurse Practitioners

An Educational Event  for School Nurses and Nurse Practitioners

2012 Nurse Conference - Lunch & Learn with Padma Lakshmi

On September 29, the EFA hosted our Second Annual Lunch & Learn with Padma Lakshmi, “Consider Endometriosis:  Tools for Nurses to Recognize Symptoms, Behavioral Patterns and Emotional Repercussions of the Disease in Young Women and Girls”.

This educational event, produced in collaboration with North Shore–LIJ/Lenox Hill Hospital, was designed to raise endometriosis awareness and offer resources to support the early detection of the disease. The “Consider Endometriosis” Tool Kit, launched at the conference, is now available for download.

The EFA strongly believes that nurses and nurse practitioners, especially those in schools, universities and clinics, are in a unique position to serve as our first line of defense, as they are among those closest to the population of young girls and women at the onset and early stages of menstruation.  We are truly grateful to all who joined us and participated in making this event a tremendous success!
