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.

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.

    Fast forward 5 years to find out incidentally I had a failing kidney. My left kidney was only functioning at 18%. During this time, I was preparing all my documents to send to Dr. Seckin to review. However, with this new information I put everything on hold and went to a urologist. After a few months, no one could figure…

    I had a wonderful experience working with Dr. Seckin and his team before, during and after my surgery. I came to Dr. Seckin having already had laparoscopic surgery for endometriosis 5 years prior, with a different surgeon. My symptoms and pain had returned, making my life truly challenging and my menstrual cycle unbearable. Dr. Seckin was quick to validate my…

He quickly ascertained what needed to be done, laid out the options along with his recommendation and gave me the time to make the right decision for me. My surgery went without a hitch and I'm healing very well. He and…
