Local Group Marks Endometriosis Awareness Month With Documentary Screening

"EndoWhat?" Preview

A local organization, Bloomin' Uterus, is marking endometriosis awareness month with a documentary screening and march.

Endometriosis is an often painful medical condition that occurs when tissue similar to the tissue that makes up the lining of the uterus spreads to other parts of the body. Symptoms of endometriosis include pain, excessive bleeding and infertility.

The screening of the documentary, "EndoWhat?", will take place at 1 p.m. on Saturday at UC San Diego and will be followed by a panel discussion.

A sold out march is taking place on March 30 at Liberty Station.

Sally Rafie, a pharmacist, and Lisa Howard, the founder of Bloomin' Uterus, will join Midday Edition Tuesday to discuss the illness.

GUESTS:

Sally Rafie, pharmacist, UC San Diego Health

Lisa Howard, founder, Bloomin’ Uterus
