Here is a small sampling of our current and upcoming projects

ULTRASOUNDS ARE THE ONLY WAY TO FIND AND PREVENT CYSTS FROM CAUSING IMPAIRED FERTILITY OR OVARIAN SURGERY #SAVEYOUROVARIES Project Status: Active. How? Go to your doctor and request an ultrasound for the most minute change in your cycle. Ultrasounds are the only way to #saveyourovaries and your fertility, but this information is not known to the average woman. Pain related to women's reproductive organs is often normalized; yet dangerous cysts, tumors, and other conditions can be silently developing and disguised as, "normal" pain. This campaign focuses on building self-advocacy for preventative care and national public awareness on the severity of ovarian issues that endanger fertility for millions of women each year.

By W.O.M.E.N. for women

According to the Center for Disease Control (2013), 7.5 million women suffer from impaired fecundity (fertility). This educational project aims to spread awareness on the ABCs of women's health and common conditions that can endanger fertility through monthly medical education forums for women of all ages across Los Angeles county.
