The Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome Association will be holding their 7th annual confernece "Life Stages of PCOS" and 2nd annual benefit fashion show at the Hilton Rye Town in Rye Brook from Ocotber 7-10, 2004.
Every year PCOSA reaches out to the local community by offering 25 complimentary exhibit booths to give expsoure to businesses and organizations that will help their conference attendees live healthier lives.
Up to 15 million women and girls worldwide have Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), a complex hormonal disorder for which there is no cure.
Not only does PCOS cause devastating short term effects such as infertility, obesity, acne, male patterned baldness and hirtuism, PCOS
has a substantial negative impact on quality of life because of the disorder's multisystem conditions. Many women with PCOS are
insulin-resistant, a condition that raises the level of insulin circulating in the body and is a precursor to type 2 diabetes. In fact,
women with PCOS have seven times the risk of other women for developing adult-onset diabetes, which in turn greatly increases their chance of
having cardiovascular disease, hypertension, stroke and kidney problems.
In addition, because obesity and type 2 diabetes have now reached epidemic proportions in the United States,and cardiovascular disease
remains the leading cause of death in women, PCOS plays a key role in the foremost causes of death and disability in American women. For many
this conference will be a first step to getting the resources and tools necessary to live healthier lives with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome.
Therefore, this conference will incorporate information and lectures on medications, medical treatments, lifestyle changes, diet, exercise and
Due to many of the symptoms of PCOS, women are often left to feel less than feminine and we would like to offer products and programs to
enhance positive self image. Approximately 80% of women and teens with PCOS face weight problems and obesity, not to mention acne, excess
facial and body hair, dark skin patches to mention a few symptoms!
This event will be attended by a minimum of 200 people and will be covered by various media outlets including REAL Magazine!
