It is truly a privilege and an honor for the invitation to address you today. I would like to thank the Endometriosis Foundation, Dr. Harry Reich and the AAGL for this opportunity. The title has changed and for good reason.

 

With all the changes in health care and patient physician relationships what should come first? Mandates on practice or patients? This subject has me greatly troubled.
