The ENPOWR Project - Jennifer Hancher

EFA’s Sixth Annual Medical Conference: Ending Endometriosis Starts at the Beginning

My name is Jenny Hancher and I am the Education and Outreach Coordinator here with the EFA and I work on the ENPOWR Project.


For those of you who do not know the ENPOWR Project is the EFA’s Education and Outreach Program, so we actually go into schools and community based organizations throughout New York State and presenting to teens and educating teens about endometriosis.


To just give you a little background on the ENPOWR Project – the ENPOWR Project started in 2013. We received a grant from Senator Jeffrey Klein who provided us with some money to actually get started and actually pilot the program, which we did in the fall of 2013. In spring of 2014 we were able to expand and include some interns to really help us expand our reach throughout the New York City and the Long Island area. In April of 2014 we received a second grant, which really helped to exponentially expand our program. Jeffrey Klein, again, has been so instrumental in really pushing this program forward. Without his support we would not have this program.

    After years of excessively painful periods, a serious loss of quality of life, and a series of uninformed and uninterested doctors, Dr. Seckin and Dr. Goldstein turned my life around. I was told I woke up from my surgery almost a year ago with a smile on my face, and I haven't stopped since. Before I heard of Dr. Seckin,…

    Dr Seckin and his team gave me back my life! Tomorrow will be 1 month since my surgery and I feel great. Dr. Seckin, Dr Liu, and Dr Goldstein are not only beyond words talented and amazing Doctors, but they are also genuinely wonderful and caring people. I cannot say enough great things about Holly, Asiye and Kim as well.…

    Dr. Seckin and his staff spared me from years and years of heavy periods and unbearable endometriosis pain. After having surgery with him (my first) I can now function like a regular human. No more eating NSAIDs like candy and calling out sick from work. Thank you, Dr. Seckin!

  • Sheena Wright

    I underwent surgery with Dr. Seckin in 2017 and have felt like a new woman ever since. If you have, or suspect you have endometriosis, Dr. Seckin and his compassionate team of surgeons and staff are a must-see.

    I have struggled with endometriosis and adenomyosis since first starting my period at 13. I was diagnosed at 21 and what followed was a series of unsuccessful surgeries and treatments. My case was very aggressive and involved my urinary tract system and my intestines. After exhausting all of my local doctors I was lucky enough to find Dr. Seckin. We…

    Like so many women who have tirelessly sought a correct diagnosis and proper, thorough medical treatment for endometriosis, I found myself 26 years into this unwanted journey without clear answers or help from four previous gynecological doctors and two emergency laparoscopic surgeries. I desperately wanted to avoid the ER again; a CT scan for appendicitis also revealed a likely endometrioma…
