Northbrook, IL, May 7, 2021—The Fibroid Fighters Foundation celebrates National Women’s Health Week by empowering women to make the choices that are best for them when it comes to their health and well-being. National Women’s Health Week (NWHW) is a weeklong health observance led by the U.S. government’s Office on Women’s Health to encourage women to make their health a priority.
“Women need to be in charge of their own health,” says Founder Dr. Yan Katsnelson, “but when there isn’t adequate education about, awareness of, or access to quality healthcare, it’s difficult for women to make decisions that will help them achieve their full potential.” Dr. Katsnelson is making women’s health a priority by dedicating the work of the Fibroid Fighters Foundation to increasing education about the fibroid epidemic and advocating for research and legislation that can make improvements in fibroid treatment.
