Black Health Matters and the Academy for Healthcare Learning (ACHL) are partnering to increase awareness of endometriosis by hosting a webinar on Thursday, March 23rd, 2023 at 7:00 pm Eastern Time. It is fitting that BHM celebrates Women’s History Month with an educational program on endometriosis. For years Black women have been neglected and misunderstood when it comes to receiving the proper care they deserve for endometriosis. Join BHM for End(o) the Stigma, especially if you or someone you know has extremely painful period, painful sex and/or pain with bowel movements or urination. Register here:

Hear from Dr. Rachel Villanueva, MD/FACOG, Immediate Past President of the National Medical Association and Clinical Assistant Professor Ob/GYN, NYU Grossman School of Medicine as she discusses symptoms and diagnosis and more. Endometriosis is among the leading causes of infertility in Black women.

Invest in yourself during Women’s History Month and join us for an outstanding webinar. #endothestigma #gettoknowendo
