We are so pleased to say that we partner with EFA. We have supported each other’s awareness throughout the month of March and even had Padma Lakshmi turn her profile photo yellow!
The Endometriosis Foundation of America (EFA) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to combating endometriosis, a debilitating reproductive disease that affects one in ten women of childbearing age in the United States. Founded by Tamer Seckin, MD and Padma Lakshmi, the EFA’s programs support its mission by focusing on advocacy, funding targeted research, educating medical professionals, and increasing disease awareness among the general public.
The Endometriosis Foundation of America strives to increase disease recognition, provide advocacy, facilitate expert surgical training, and fund landmark endometriosis research. Engaged in a robust campaign to inform both the medical community and the public, the EFA places particular emphasis on the critical importance of early diagnosis and effective intervention while simultaneously providing education to the next generation of medical professionals and their patients.
