Agent of Change Philanthropy Award
The PCOS Challenge Agent of Change Philanthropy Award honors an individual or family with a proven record of exceptional generosity who, through direct financial support, demonstrates outstanding civic and charitable responsibility and whose generosity encourages others to take philanthropic leadership roles related to PCOS.
Amy Medling, best-selling author of Healing PCOS and certified health coach, specializes in working with women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), who are frustrated and have lost all hope when the only solution their doctors offer is to lose weight, take a pill, and live with their symptoms. In response, Amy founded PCOS Diva and developed a proven protocol of supplements, diet, and lifestyle programs that offer women tools to help gain control of their PCOS and regain their fertility, femininity, health, and happiness.
The PCOS Diva/PCOS Challenge Confidence Grant, which helps women and girls struggling with hair and skin issues related to polycystic ovary syndrome, was created through an endowment from Amy Medling. The PCOS Confidence Grant awards up to $500 per individual to assist with the costs associated with treatments and options for hair and skin issues related to PCOS, including dermatology treatments, laser hair removal, electrolysis, androgenetic alopecia solutions and others.
