Endometriosis Association Founder on the PCOS Challenge Radio Show
Endometriosis is a painful, chronic disease that affects at least 6.3 million women and girls in the U.S., 1 million in Canada, and millions more worldwide. This is a condition that also affects many women with polycystic ovarian syndrome.
Mary Lou Ballweg is President and Executive Director of the Endometriosis Association, an organization she founded in 1980 after being bedridden with endometriosis and related illnesses. The non-profit organization provides support and information for families affected by endometriosis, educates the public and medical community about the disease, and promotes and conducts research.
“With endometriosis affecting millions of women, including many in the PCOS community, we felt that it is a natural fit for us to help to bring more awareness to the disease,” says Sasha Ottey. "It is important for women to be able to recognize the signs and symptoms of endometriosis and bring them to the attention of their physicians or health care providers to get treatment and management options."
Listeners can tune into a live stream of the radio show on Wednesday, March 05, 2014 at 6:30 PM EST at BlogTalkRadio.com/
