The U.S. National Library of Medicine (NLM), renowned for its mission to collect, preserve, and provide access to materials in medicine and public health, has recognized the invaluable contribution of EndoFound's website in disseminating critical information and resources on endometriosis.
Inclusion in the NLM's web archive collections is a significant achievement for EndoFound, as it signifies the organization's commitment to preserving important materials in medicine and public health for future generations.
