Elevating the Voices of
Women living with Fibroids

Upcoming events

The Fibroid Foundation hosts a variety of engaging and informative events to advocate for patient-centered fibroids research and erase the stigma around fibroids and menstruation.

Dr. Candice Jones-Cox, Director of Women’s Health Services of Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, and Dr. Linda Bradley of the Cleveland Clinic will explain the importance of gynecologic screenings, regardless of fibroid treatment choices. They will discuss post-menopausal heavy menstrual bleeding and other critical issues to share with your healthcare provider. Sateria Venable, Fibroid Foundation Founder and CEO, will contribute her insights to this crucial conversation.
Dr. Jeannie Kim of Columbia University and Dr. Pietro Bortoletto of Boston IVF will lead a discussion on treatment options and pregnancy outcomes following fibroid surgery. This session will provide valuable insights for women hoping to conceive after fibroid treatment.
Denise Pines from WisePause and Claire Gill from the National Menopause Foundation, alongside Sateria Venable, will address managing fibroid symptoms after 40, particularly during pregnancy, perimenopause and menopause. This session is essential for understanding how to navigate symptom fluctuations as you age.
