Did you know that only .0.1% of the National Institute of Health budget goes to PCOS research despite being the #1 hormone syndrome in women?
Two major events are happening in the world of PCOS! Sasha Ottey, founder of PCOS Challenge, a leading patient support and advocacy group visited the podcast to share the news.
First, House Resolution 495 is making its way through Congress. This bill advocates for national PCOS awareness and to make September officially national PCOS Awareness month. Make your voice heard! Listen in to find out easy ways to get in touch with your representative or go to PCOSchallenge.org.
Second, PCOS Challenge is holding its annual Symposium and BOLT 5K walk on September 15 & 16. This is one of my favorite events of the year. It is an uplifting weekend as women from around the country gather to share information and support.
