This opportunity is exactly what I had hoped my public health education would offer: professional public health development in the field of endometriosis, working toward reducing the unnecessary suffering that so many women experience.


Kelly M. Heslin, of the Mel and Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health, University of Arizona, joins Vital Health Endometriosis Center this summer to complete the Internship for her Masters in Public Health Degree.  Kelly’s Internship plan is focused on the development of an Endometriosis Education Plan that will serve as an outreach program in our community and elsewhere.

In Kelly’s words: “Endometriosis is a reproductive disease that affects at least 1 in 10 women worldwide, causing pain and infertility, as well as numerous other symptoms that interfere with a woman’s health and productivity. Vital Health Endometriosis Center has invaluable connections to and direct involvement with the local community, as well as the endometriosis treatment and research community at large. I foresee this internship as merely a stepping off point, and I am optimistic that I will be able to continue working with this project specifically, or with one of the other major players in the endometriosis field to continue educating and advocating for women who are marginalized by the existing health system, both pre- and post-diagnosis”.

We warmly welcome Kelly to the Vital Health Team this summer,  for completion of this important work.

The Endo Patient’s Survival Guide, co-authored by Dr. Andrew Cook, Libby Hopton and Danielle Cook, is the essential patient’s companion to living with and overcoming endometriosis and pelvic pain: from seeking help and getting an initial diagnosis to navigating treatment options and achieving optimal relief and wellness.

The guide is now printed and available for order on Amazon.com

Endo Guide cover FINAL1

 


Endometriosis tortures people. It doesn’t kill them but there are times when you may wish it would kill you.


CBS news LA covers the story of Leslie Valladares, a former patient of Dr. Cook who had her life transformed following his specialized endometriosis excision surgery. Leslie had suffered for years with the crippling symptoms of endometriosis and had been unable to find relief, despite enduring surgeries and rounds of hormone therapy with several doctors. After exhausting all her options locally, she decided to travel to Los Gatos to undergo surgery with Dr. Cook, world-renowned specialist in endometriosis, and went on to make a full recovery.

We hope that Leslie’s courage in sharing her story will bring hope to other women who are struggling to live with the same debilitating symptoms.
