On March 4, 2021, PCOS Challenge: The National Polycystic Ovary Syndrome Association will be holding the fourth annual PCOS Advocacy Day. Due to COVID-19 public safety concerns, the 2021 PCOS Advocacy Day will be held as a virtual event using web and phone conferencing. Join us for this important event as we help influence federal policy and make a difference in the lives of the millions of people affected by PCOS. Join us as we urge Congress to increase support for PCOS research and policies that not only speed the development of new treatments, but also ensure that people with PCOS have timely access to the care they need and deserve.
This important event is an opportunity to:
- Share your story.
- Educate Members of Congress about PCOS
- Make the case for why more must be done now to advance PCOS research and care
About Virtual PCOS Advocacy Day
PCOS Advocacy Day 2021 is a PCOS Challenge event where a passionate group of patients, supporters, healthcare providers, researchers, community and industry partners unite on Capitol Hill to meet with members of Congress to urge them to make polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) a national priority. After receiving training and tools, participants will educate Congressional Members and staff on policies that impact their state and district, and why greater access to care and increased support for PCOS research is needed. Personal meetings will be scheduled for advocates with their elected officials and their staff in both the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate.
PCOS Advocacy Day Goal
Our primary goal for this year’s advocacy day is to ensure the federal government is investing adequate resources to accomplish the following:
- To understand the breadth and depth of the impact of PCOS affecting millions people in the U.S.
- To make PCOS research a priority to improve treatments and to find a cure.
- To support all those affected with PCOS with appropriate resources and programs.
