Advocacy Update: Abbott, Cooney join virtual PCOS Advocacy Day

 
On March 4, 2021, David Abbott, PhD, of the UW Ob-Gyn Division of Reproductive Sciences and Laura Cooney, MD, of the UW Ob-Gyn Division of Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility attended the virtual PCOS Advocacy Day, hosted by PCOS Challenge.

PCOS Advocacy Day focuses on building connections with federal legislators and advocating for increased access to better informed medical care for women with polycystic ovary syndrome and broader and increased NIH funding for PCOS research beyond infertility.

The day included meetings with members of Congress and their staff. The Wisconsin delegations met with staff from the offices of Senators Tammy Baldwin and Ron Johnson, and Representatives Mark Pocan and Brian Steil.

Thanks to Dr. Abbott and Dr. Cooney for bringing this important issue some national attention!
