Libby Hopton
It’s a great privilege to be a part of such a dedicated team of professionals. I’m excited at the unique opportunity that Vital Health has to offer with regard to research within the field of endometriosis and chronic pelvic pain.Libby

For those of you who know Libby, it will be easy to understand why we have been working with her since September 2013 to help her obtain a work visa here in the United States and join Vital Health Institute. She is in the process of moving all the way from The Netherlands to beautiful Los Gatos, California. Margaret has been tirelessly working on this project for the last year, and Libby’s visa was officially approved this month.

For those of you who do not know Libby, she is a young woman who is incredibly gifted in her ability to gather and synthesize data, particularly relating to endometriosis. She is a young woman who has just completed her masters and has also suffered from endometriosis and pelvic pain. In the process of educating herself about this disease and obtaining appropriate treatment, she became very aware of the many problems associated with the field of endometriosis and pelvic pain. She has made it part of her life work to increase the quality of care and the scientific basis for the field of endometriosis. She started the Facebook group Endometropolis and the website

Libby has rapidly gained notoriety in the field of endometriosis, both with patients and many of the internationally recognized endometriosis specialists, as a result of her depth of knowledge of the published scientific papers in the world’s literature.

We are honored to have Libby joining Vital Health Institute as Director of the Department of Research and Evidence Based Medicine. She will help with program development and refinement as well as helping to organize and publish the ongoing scientific research we are doing at Vital Health Institute.

We are all committed to providing the best possible medical care to women with endometriosis and pelvic pain. We are also dedicated as a team to increase the quality of medicine and care in general provided to women worldwide with endometriosis and pelvic pain. Libby’s first official day at Vital Health Institute is October 6th. Congratulations, Libby, on your move to the USA and a big welcome from all of us at Vital Health Institute.
