WASHINGTON (PRWEB) April 24, 2021
Today, Real Housewives of Atlanta star Cynthia Bailey-Hill announced her support for Responsum for Fibroids, an online empowerment, knowledge, and support platform for women with uterine fibroids, a condition that affects 70-80% of all women by the age of 50. Provided in partnership with CARE About Fibroids and The White Dress Project—two of the nation’s leading fibroids support organizations—and underwritten with independent support from AbbVie, a global research-driven biopharmaceutical company, Responsum for Fibroids is available for free via web browser or mobile app.
Sharing her support for the app with over 3 million Instagram and nearly 1 million Twitter followers, Ms. Bailey-Hill has been an outspoken advocate for greater education and access to care for women with uterine fibroids, a condition she has personally experienced and “opened up” about with her fans.
Posting on her Instagram account, Ms. Bailey-Hill wrote, “LADIES! We must take care of our bodies and our health. For those of you who are suffering with fibroids or need additional information about fibroids, download the @responsumforfibroids https://bit.ly/3alTzSW, for up-to-date information and helpful resources. I am so relieved since having my UFE procedure. I want you, too, to be informed and find the relief that works best for you. Be strong and stay well, xo Cynthia.”
Thoughtfully designed to best serve fibroids patients and their families, Responsum for Fibroids provides users with a toolkit of useful, community-oriented features. The platform replaces undependable web aggregators and social sites with a personalized Newsfeed that delivers easy-to-read summaries of important fibroids news and information from across the internet every day. Moreover, all Responsum for Fibroids content is written by professional health writers and vetted by a team of researchers under the guidance of an Expert Advisory Council.
Other features include the Community Chat, a moderated social wall where women can share experiences and advice; automatic translation into seven languages; and the Patient One-Sheet, which allows patients to easily collect, maintain, and print their key medical information. Members also have access to a robust collection of trusted patient resources, including financial assistance and support groups.
