Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the program runs from 7:00 p.m. to 8 p.m. Husbands, partners, family members, and close friends are welcome.

Reservations can be made for this and future 2012 meetings by visiting Riverside Medical Clinic Foundation’s website, http://www.rivfound.org.

Endometriosis is a chronic disease that often has a significant impact on a woman’s life. It affects over 70 million women and girls worldwide, and is more common than breast cancer. Frequently misdiagnosed, women suffering from this disease often face a great deal of pain, frustration, confusion, and anxiety. The average length of time to be diagnosed with endometriosis is 7-10 years.

Riverside Social Worker and endometriosis patient, Celinda Mulder, facilitates the group. Please join us for the group’s first meeting of 2012 as Celinda shares her compelling story of living with endometriosis.
