WORLDWIDE ENDOMETRIOSIS MARCH
Founders 30 days countdown message

Dear EndoMarch Supporters, Volunteers, Ambassadors, and Team and Country Captains:

On behalf of all of us at Worldwide Endometriosis March and Endometriosis day Headquarters, I would like to sincerely thank you all for your continued support of the Worldwide Endometriosis March (EndoMarch) and its mission to bring awareness to endometriosis all around the world. We have 30 days until the Endometriosis Day and the 4th Worldwide EndoMarch, the leading movement in the US and around the world, to March and end the silence for endometriosis.

In the United States, we will host our national event in San Francisco. We would like to express our gratitude to Dr. Robert Wah (Past-President, American Medical Association), Dr. Linda Giudice (President, World Endometriosis Society), and Dr. Paul Wetter (Chair, Society of Laparoendoscopic Surgeons) who will join us once again, and who have all attended our Marches for the past three years. In Washington DC, Howard University will host our event and our appreciation goes especially to Dr. Hal Lawrence (Chief Executive Officer, American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists)  Dr. Alan DeCherney (NIH: Child Health and Human Development) Dr. James Robinson (MedStar Washington Hospital Center) Mr. Sean Tipton (Chief Advocacy, Policy and Development Officer, American Society for Reproductive Medicine), Dr. Kevin Smith (Kaiser Permanente Mid-Atlantic Group), who will join us again in our Educational Symposium.

Only three years have passed since our first Annual Worldwide EndoMarch in Washington DC, and the grassroots movement is taking off by leaps and bounds. This year for our 4th Annual Worldwide EndoMarch, cities in the United States will be holding marches from coast to coast, from San Francisco and Los Angeles to Washington DC, and everywhere in between, from Kentucky to Chicago, and Iowa and Michigan. We are hardly alone, though, in our growth within the US and we are pleased to announce that we have more countries, states and cities joining us for our global movement, including Switzerland, Barbados, Canada South Alberta, Stockholm-Sweden, Germany-Schweinfurt, Hong Kong, along with Worldwide EndoMarch Team Argentina, Worldwide EndoMarch Team Australia Adelaide High Tea, Worldwide EndoMarch Team Australia Brisbane High Tea, Worldwide EndoMarch Team Australia Canberra High Tea, Worldwide EndoMarch Team Australia Gold Coast High Tea, Worldwide EndoMarch Team  Australia Hobart High Tea, Worldwide EndoMarch Team Australia Melbourne High Tea, Worldwide EndoMarch Team Australia Newcastle High Tea, Worldwide EndoMarch Team Australia Perth High Tea, Worldwide EndoMarch Team Australia  Sydney High Tea, Worldwide EndoMarch Team Australia Wollongong High Tea, Worldwide EndoMarch Team Austria, Worldwide EndoMarch Team Barbados Bridgetwon, Worldwide EndoMarch Team Barbados St.Michael, Worldwide EndoMarch Team Belgium,Worldwide EndoMarch Team Brazil in 13 cities in 12 different states in Brazil: Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Belo Horizonte, Florianópolis, Porto Alegre, Campo Grande, Brasília, Boa Vista, Fortaleza, Salvador, Londrina, Maringá, Curitiba, Worldwide EndoMarch Team Canada Alberta, Worldwide Endomarch China, Worldwide EndoMarch Team Cyprus, Worldwide EndoMarch Team France, Worldwide EndoMarch Team Greece, Worldwide EndoMarch Team Hong Kong, Worldwide EndoMarch Team Hungary, Worldwide EndoMarch Team Italy, Worldwide EndoMarch Kuwait, Endometriosis New Zealand, Worldwide EndoMarch Team Nigeria, Worldwide EndoMarch Team Panama, ,Worldwide EndoMarch Team Portugal, Worldwide EndoMarch Team Saudi Arabia, Worldwide EndoMarch Team Spain, Worldwide EndoMarch Team South Africa, Worldwide EndoMarch Team Switzerland, Worldwide EndoMarch Team Uganda, Worldwide EndoMarch Team UK London, Worldwide EndoMarch Team UK Glasgow, Worldwide EndoMarch Team UK Manchester, Worldwide EndoMarch Team UK Cardiff Wales, Worldwide EndoMarch Team Zimbabwe.

We also have more exciting news to share with our supporters: on March 15th, 2017, Drs. Camran, Farr and Ceana Nezhat, the founders of Worldwide Endometriosis March and Endometriosis day, will attend the United Nations health assembly due to the unprecedented efforts of team France and of Dr. Chrysoula Zacharopoulou. We will address the urgency for endometriosis awareness and advancement of endometriosis research around the world.

Last but not least, each year, Worldwide EndoMarch selects one person who has contributed significantly to those affected by endometriosis, and names him or her the “Endo Hero of the Year.” We would like to congratulate Dr. Hal Lawrence, Executive Vice President and Chief Executive Officer of American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, who will be awarded by the Worldwide EndoMarch as the 2017 recipient of the Endo Hero of the Year award, for his outstanding contributions in the field of endometriosis research and advocacy. Dr. Lawrence joins the previous accomplished honorees, Dr. Linda Guidice, past president of the American Society of Reproductive Medicine, and Dr. Robert Wah, past president of the American Medical Association. Our Hero award to him cannot do justice to how grateful we are for Dr. Lawrence’s contributions to improving patient care. As the leader of the top organization of gynecologists, Dr. Lawrence is committed to implementing healthcare reform so that all women in this country can have access to the care that they need and deserve.

Our leading nominee for the Hero of 2018 is Dr. Paul Wetter, Chairman of the prestigious Society of Laparoendoscopic Surgeons, the largest multidisciplinary minimally invasive surgical society in the world. Among his initiatives, Society of Laparoendoscopic Surgeons has started a subspecialty surgical fellowship for endometriosis, the first ever in any academic setting. He is the pioneer and champion of Open Access collaboration in medical education around the world, he brought together top innovators in minimally invasive surgery to form the influential and highly read journal, JSLS, and is improving the health of millions through his OR Ready global initiative.

Once again, we thank all of you for your selfless dedication to this important cause, over the past three years.

Please join us to end the silence for Endometriosis.

Forward we go,
