Endometriosis - The How & Why and Recent Advances in Treatment

with Dr. Camran Nezhat & Dr. Azadeh Nezhat 
March 27th, 2018. 6PM EST RSVP
Endometriosis is a disease where the internal lining of the uterus (endometrium) starts to grow outside the uterus, mainly on organs in the pelvis, causing a maze of symptoms including not only pelvic pain, infertility, and severe menstrual cramps but many more. It affects more than 170 million women worldwide, and it affects every woman differently. Unfortunately, many women remain undiagnosed, or, are diagnosed late due to lack of understanding of the symptoms of the disease. Despite this, there is lack of research funding into the management of Endometriosis, making women's options limited. March is Endometriosis Awareness Month and the 5th Worldwide Endometriosis March will take place on 24th March 2018, in 60+ countries this year, to gain attention of health policy makers and congressional representatives. In honor, we are talking to eminent endometriosis specialists, and the founders of Worldwide Endometriosis March and Endometriosis Day, Dr. Camran Nezhat and Dr. Azadeh Nezhat, all about Endometriosis and the latest advances in its diagnosis, treatment and management.

The Broad Institute in Cambridge, Massachusetts, is one of the most sophisticated bioscience research centers in North America. It seeks to empower a revolution in biomedicine that will accelerate the speed at which we can conquer disease. The Metastatic Prostate Cancer Project is a new initiative coordinated by the Broad Institute. Initially, it will allow any patient in North America with advanced or metastatic prostate cancer to contribute his personal genetic, genomic, & clinical data to the development of the world's most comprehensive database on advanced prostate cancer, permitting the entire prostate cancer research community to access this database & accelerate discoveries for the management of advanced prostate cancer. The prostate cancer panel led by Mike Scott talks to Dr. Eli Van Allen about the project.
