“I had such a wonderful experience at the endometriosis medical conference. It was intriguing to listen about lecture topics from experts in the field. There was a diverse group of physicians there with different practices and opinions. This opened up a lot of room for discussion. I specifically enjoyed the portion of the conference about the most current initiatives to teach endometriosis in schools. Attending this conference makes me excited to eventually be a physician working to improve women’s health.”

“The EFA conference provided a great opportunity to gain an interdisciplinary perspective of endometriosis. The clinicians and academic researchers engaged in discourse that ultimately focused on improving the quality of their patients’ lives.”

“It was such an honor to attend the EFA annual conference! The intimate setting gave me the opportunity to not only hear talks from experts in the field but to interact with them personally. It also empowered me to be a better patient advocate. I hope future students will have the opportunity to learn about an issue that is too-often forgotten in our curriculums, but so integral to women’s health. Thank you EFA for the experience, and I hope to continue to attend as a resident and physician!”

“The Endometriosis Foundation of America’s “Ending Endometriosis Starts at the Beginning” Conference was an exciting new look at a pathology that is largely overlooked, and whose long- and short-term effects are grossly underestimated in the field of gynecology. The conference gave an in-depth review of the cutting edge research and technology that the field has to offer. It also addressed the issues concerning quality of life of sufferers of this disease.”
