PCOS Awareness Association (PCOSAA), a worldwide non-profit support organization advancing the cause for individuals with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), is thrilled to present to the public the first ever PCOS CON event to take place on September 19-21, 2019 just outside of Washington, DC.
Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is a hormonal disorder that affects over 10,000,000 individuals of reproductive age. It is one of the most common endocrine disorders and is the leading cause of female infertility. It can also lead to obesity, heart disease, diabetes, and endometrial cancer.
This conference intends to make PCOS a priority in public health; it affects 1 in 5 women and can have a long-term effect on their overall health, yet PCOS is highly overlooked by the public and medical professionals. This platform creates an avenue for people to learn accurate information, get support and to empower themselves as advocates for the cause. PCOS CON will bring together medical professionals, companies, organizations, researchers, hundreds of individuals with PCOS and their supporters for two and half days to share insights, information, the latest updates about the condition and experiences.
To add to the event, there will be high-energy and captivating guest speakers, fun activities, exhibits, presentations, gifts and guest celebrities on the agenda that will leave attendees feeling informed, relieved, empowered and entertained.
