I am excited to introduce a new PCOS not-for-profit organization. Megan reached out to me a few months ago. She is rocking and rolling and has lots of great things planned in the next few months. Her organization is the official PCOS representative for the 2013 World Congress on Endocrinology.
About PCOS Awareness Association
PCOS Awareness Association (PCOSAA) is a newly established non-profit 501(c)3 organization, created because there is a need for more information, more research and the need to provide connections among women with PCOS, along with providers, to help with symptoms. The mission of PCOS Awareness Association is to provide information, support and resources to sufferers of PCOS and their families, friends and supports systems. PCOS Awareness Association’s goals are to get more women tested, to connect them with specialists and others that can help them with their symptoms of PCOS, to inform the public about the severity of PCOS, to help fund research of PCOS and most of all to connect PCOS sufferers with one another. From the website (www.pcosaa.org) PCOS sufferers all over the world can create a profile, join groups, start discussions, give each other support and search their physical location for help with their PCOS symptoms. The more members that join, the more PCOS specialists will join.
