Did you know that more than 1 in 10 people with vaginas suffer from endometriosis?

Join Medical Herstory for our two part event series Invisible and Unbelieved: Meet Endometriosis on January 8th and 9th 2021!

ENDOWHAT? AN EXCLUSIVE FILM SCREENING
Medical Herstory and the Comparative Healthcare Systems Program (CHSP) will be hosting an exclusive screening of the film “Endo What?”. This 55-minute documentary sets out to demystify endometriosis and empower women and the medical community to end the vicious cycle of delayed diagnosis and ineffective treatments. The movie night will be on January 8th from 7:00-8:30 PM ET.

LIVING WITH ENDOMETRIOSIS: A PANEL WITH THE EXPERTS
The next day, join us for the second part of the event series which will include an exciting panel featuring healthcare professionals, experts, and activists who live with endometriosis. Our wonderful speakers will explore what it is like to have endometriosis, how gender inequities in healthcare impact their illness, and how healthcare professionals can better support patients.
