The FUS Foundation's patient-support organization, Fibroid Relief, is kicking off 2011 with a free educational event in Charlottesville, Virginia on February 3. The event will be the first held in conjunction with the Focused Ultrasound Center of Excellence at the University of Virginia.

According to Tina Krall, executive director of Fibroid Relief, confirmed speakers include Alan Matsumoto, M.D. (Focused Ultrasound and Uterine Fibroid Embolization); Elisa Trowbridge, M.D. (Robotic Myomectomy); Bruce Bateman, M.D. (Gynecology and Fertility); Annette Owens, M.D. (Sexual Health); Cindy Janechild, R.N. (Holistic Medicine) and three uterine fibroid patients, one of whom was successfully treated with MR-guided focused ultrasound at UVA.

"We're excited to bring our important message to patients in Central Virginia and encourage everyone to follow us on the Fibroid Relief website and on our Facebook page," Krall says.
