The PCOS Awareness Symposium presented by PCOS Challenge, Inc. will feature some of the world's leading experts on Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS).
PCOS is one of the most critical, underserved, under-diagnosed and underfunded conditions affecting women's health. It is a complex hormonal, metabolic and reproductive disorder that affects one in 10 women of childbearing age. PCOS is a leading cause of infertility in women and a precursor for numerous life threatening related conditions including type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Women with PCOS are also at higher risk for obesity, severe depression, endometrial cancer and other cancers.

This important event will help women and girls affected by PCOS become proactive about their health and discover strategies and resources to overcome their symptoms and reduce their risk for life-threatening related diseases.
Some of the topics covered include:
