The Foundation is redefining the medical talk format, with fun, community engagement, good food and great information. Following a champagne reception, the Chief and Co-Director of the Columbia Obstetrics and Gynecology Department (Dr. Arnold Advincula and Dr. Jeannie Kim) will conduct a presentation on fibroids and treatment options.

The Fibroid Foundation is a global women's health advocacy organization founded by fibroids patient, Sateria Venable in 2013.

Sateria founded the organization as a frustrated fibroids patient in need of medical and holistic care to treat debilitating fibroids. What began as a blog, soon expanded to small forums, became a registered 501(c)3, and has developed a global network focused on this health concern that affects millions of women.

The numbers of fibroids patients is staggering - 80% of African American women have uterine fibroids, and 25% of all women in the United States will eventually be diagnosed with fibroids. Fibroids account for half of annual hysterectomies in the U.S. Only 10% of the hysterectomies performed on fibroids patients have been deemed necessary. Join The Fibroid Foundation on May 10th to help to #EraseTheStigma.

The mission

The Fibroid Foundation's mission is to be the premier global community of Fibroids patients. At the heart of their mission is self-care, patient advocacy, and communicating the voice of "the patient" living with Uterine Fibroids.

They create and support initiatives that provide non-invasive treatment options and ultimately, a cure for fibroids. They also advocate for ongoing funding of patient sensitive fibroids research. Their international platform focuses on erasing the 'Stigma of Silence' around women's menstrual issues, and minimizing treatment disparities with layered patient support.
