Focus on Fibroids: What Do Women Need for Better Care?

Description

The Society for Women’s Health Research (SWHR) will host a virtual panel discussion to raise awareness about research gaps and unmet needs related to diagnosis, treatment, and access to care for uterine fibroids.

 

Uterine fibroids are a significant public health issue affecting about 26 million American women, with Black women at increased risk for the disease compared to white women. Fibroids are benign tumors that grow in and around the uterus, and they can cause symptoms such as heavy or irregular menstrual bleeding and pelvic pressure or pain.

Panelists will share their insights on how to improve the health of women with fibroids by driving innovation in research, clinical care, policymaking, and education for this often overlooked, underfunded, and stigmatized disease.
