Currently, they have an active Facebook group and are looking to launch their website.

Seeing the lack of awareness, shortage of endometriosis specialists as well as research made the idea turn to action quickly. We are hoping to focus our visions on creating more generalized awareness. Hoping to aid in fellowship programs in order to gain more specialists for the disease; with the added hope to get resources into provinces that currently have none, as well aid in research to hopefully one day find a cure.
