SWHR brought together a group of patients, clinicians, researchers and other relevant stakeholders for a daylong roundtable meeting to identify unmet needs and knowledge gaps in endometriosis, a condition that affects an estimated 10% of reproductive-age women and causes symptoms such as painful periods and heavy bleeding.
To address the significant impact of chronic pain on women, SWHR will assemble a group of researchers, clinicians, patients, and health care thought leaders for a meeting on chronic pain in women, with a particular focus on osteoarthritic pain.
Of the more than 100 strains of human papillomavirus (HPV), at least 14 have been identified as having the potential to cause cancer, including cervical, oropharyngeal, vaginal, vulvar, and anal cancers.
