Reflections on Attending the 13th World Congress on Endometriosis

From May 17-May 21, team Citizen Endo was in Vancouver, Canada to attend the 13th World Congress on Endometriosis (WCE) — a very exciting trip considering WCE only happens once every 3 years and brings together the world’s foremost endometriosis researchers. Overall, 1200 delegates from 60 different countries attended! We presented our poster entitled “Towards Precision Medicine for Endometriosis: Dynamic Disease Characterization Through Temporal Tracking of Patient Reported Outcomes.” We were also grateful to participate in the 4th Workshop on Research Priorities in Endometriosis organized by WERF (World Endometriosis Research Foundation) and WES (World Endometriosis Society).
