About Us

The Endometriosis Foundation of America (EndoFound) was co-founded in 2009 by Padma Lakshmi, author and TV host/executive producer of "Top Chef," and Tamer Seckin, MD., an endometriosis specialist and women's reproductive health advocate.

EndoFound strives to increase disease recognition, provide advocacy, facilitate expert surgical training, and fund landmark endometriosis research. Engaged in a robust campaign to inform both the medical community and the public, the EndoFound places particular emphasis on the critical importance of early diagnosis and effective intervention while simultaneously providing education to the next generation of medical professionals and their patients.
