Join the Society for Women’s Health Research (SWHR) for an expert panel discussion about the significant social and economic burden of endometriosis on women, families, and society. This chronic, painful disease affects 10% of reproductive-age women, but its cause remains unknown and there is no cure. This briefing will address the current state of endometriosis research and policy considerations affecting a woman’s diagnosis, treatment, and access to care. This panel was made possible by an educational program grant from AbbVie.
