The Foundation’s patient support organization, Fibroid Relief, will conduct its second Coffee and Conversation event in London on Saturday, July 31.
Presented in partnership with St. Mary’s Hospital, the event will offer an intimate, safe and supportive environment where past and present uterine fibroid sufferers can talk freely about their experiences, share knowledge and learn from each other.
The MR Therapy Centre team from St Mary’s will facilitate the discussion and answer questions about treatment options, including focused ultrasound. Stephen Quinn, M.D., a gynecology fellow who specializes in fibroid care, will be the guest speaker.
“Our goal is to educate women about non-invasive treatment options for uterine fibroids, and Coffee and Conversation events are a direct way to share information with patients,” says Tina Krall, executive director of Fibroid Relief. “These gatherings are designed to be more intimate and informal than our larger Fibroid Relief At Last events. The format is much like a support group, with doctors and patients sharing information about different treatments, alternative medicine, fertility, referrals and more.”
