Don’t Miss the International Endometriosis Patient Conference

The International Patient Conference, The Path Towards A Cure: Connecting Patients with Science is taking place this weekend (19-21 March 2021).

Organized by the Endometriosis Foundation of America (EndoFound) in partnership with the International Society of Gynecologic Endoscopy, the conference aims to strengthen the worldwide endometriosis community and ensure endometriosis patients live their best possible lives.

Endometriosis severely affects a patient’s quality of life. Early detection is key because if left untreated endometriosis can cause severe chronic pelvic pain and even infertility. Raising awareness about the disease is therefore very important to allow patients to recognize the signs and symptoms of the disease and seek expert medical advice promptly.

The conference brings together experts in the fields of extrapelvic endometriosis, fertility, mental health, and nutrition. Endometriosis patients will also share their own stories and tips about how they manage their condition as well as advocacy and support.

Running in multiple time zones, the conference will be held online, this year due to COVID-19 restrictions. For those in Asia and the Pacific, sessions will start at 7 PM EST and will run through to 10 PM EST on Friday, March 19. Delegates in the Americas, Europe, Africa, and the Middle East will be able to join between 11 AM and 3 PM EST on Sunday, March 21.

Dr. Tamer Seckin, Founder and President of EndoFound, and Dr. Dan Martin, Scientific and Medical Director of EndoFound are the moderating chairs of the conference. Dr. Neil Johnson, President of the World Endometriosis Society, and Deborah Bush, Co-Founder and Chief Executive of Endometriosis New Zealand will also join.

Sessions include “What is going on down there?” where the science behind the symptoms of endometriosis will be explored. This will be followed by a talk entitled “When Does Endometriosis Become a Disease?”

Other sessions include “Adolescents & Familial Endometriosis," “Patients for Advocacy and Policy Change," “Converting  Pain to Power," “Complementary Management," “Not So Rare: Endo of Remote Sites," and “Fertility”.

The conference is open and free for all. Registration is through the EndoFound website.
