As many of you now know, the coronavirus pandemic has dramatically changed how we interact, socialize and live our lives.
To curb the spread of the virus, the Endometriosis Foundation of Houston on March 13 made the decision to cancel the inaugural Endometriosis Awareness Rally scheduled for March 28. Just days later, Harris County officials closed bars, restaurants and asked the public to stay indoors.
The rally has been postponed indefinitely.
We will provide updates when we have additional information.
Please read our full release here:
Public awareness of
endometriosis is key, because it is estimated that 1 in 10 women are affected by endometriosis. Nearly 200 million individuals are affected by this disease worldwide.
Rethink Endo serves our community in new ways by focusing on one goal: Break the Cycle.
We will raise awareness by:
1. Debunking the myths of endometriosis; and
2. Encouraging individuals to be more open about their symptoms
