PCOS can lead to serious health problems like heart disease and diabetes, if not taken seriously. Unfortunately, PCOS is not well understood in the medical field due to variation in symptoms and the fact that the exact cause is not known. Not all women experience or feel the same symptoms. With greater awareness, and get enlightened.
The name, “Women Walking Together” indicates the coming together of women to unite together, with similar passion to raise awareness and support other women. We believe this event will help them understand the facts about the disorder. Consequently, this will make a huge difference in the fight against PCOS.
The 5k Walk is an opportunity to educate women based on medical research, encourage them to make healthy lifestyle changes and empower them to take charge of their own health.
The month of September is National PCOS Awareness month! We are organizing a 5k Walk in locations across the country.
