Padma Lakshmi - Medical Conference 2014

Padma Lakshmi - Medical Conference 2014

Good afternoon and thank you all for coming. I am the other co-founder of the Endometriosis Foundation. I know that both Tamer and I share the view that we could not do this conference, or any of the other endeavors that Endofound is currently, and has, taken on without all of your contributions. Not only by your presence, but by your thoughts and your opinions and just the actual, intellectual weight you bring to this gathering. And for that, on behalf of both of us I personally want to say thank you so much for being here. We do really appreciate all of your presence and all of the things that you have enlightened us about and hopefully shared back with your own colleagues wherever you come from.

I hope to see a lot of you at the Ball tonight. I hope you will also come back year after year and help us to not only educate the next generation of medical professionals but also the lay public because you are the captains in our industry. Dr. Seckin and I cannot at all do it without you, without all of you and without people that you count on back home that we may not even know about.

We encourage you, I encourage you to please stay involved and perhaps get even more involved if you can in any way possible. We would welcome any of your support and input. I am sure you all have a lot to bring to the table.

I want to thank you for being here. We will be back after a short lunch break and you will meet our keynote speaker, Bill Avery. Thank you so much.
