Thank you for your patience as we revise and revamp our site. Stay tuned to see what develops here!

The ERC's website is dedicated to our Senior Advisor, Nancy Petersen, RN and to the memories of Ellen Johnson and Kristi An Rose. We are working on revising our website thanks to the incredibly generous support of Commander Susan Pierce Richards NP, Angie Whitney and the Selah Fun Runners.  We ask for your patience during this transitional time. You may experience broken links, page errors and outdated URLs. Thank you for staying tuned as we undergo a facelift! Please remember we are a non-profit organization which depends on volunteer support for such initiatives; as such, these projects take time. Thanks for your understanding. We hope you will join us here for the latest information and updates.

Endometriosis is a painful disease affecting an estimated 176 million individuals around the world (WERF).  Mistakenly stigmatized as merely "painful periods", the disease is far more than just simple "killer cramps." The far-reaching impact of endometriosis negatively impact all of society - indeed; staggering costs associated with the illness soar near an estimated $119 billion annually (EndoCost Consortium, WERF).  The ERC has worked tirelessly since 1997 to make a positive difference in the lives of all those affected by the disease. For almost two decades, our organization has been an international leader in endometriosis awareness, education, encouragement and empowerment, and is involved in a number of global endometriosis research and collaborative efforts. Unlike other organizations, however, we are unique in that we are not fee-based and are completely independent - not affiliated with any industry partners, individuals, sponsors or physicians. There is never a cost to be involved in or benefit from the ERC’s many programs.  There are many ways in which the ERC can help, whether you are an individual with endometriosis, a loved one, physician, legislator, researcher or media contact.  We are dedicated not only to improving the quality of life for those with the disease, but to continuing our important work with clinicians, payers, legislators and researchers all over the world as well in order to improve lives and access to care. It has been our mission since our founding to bridge the gap between patients and professionals to support the journey of those affected by the disease. We’re glad you’re here. As we transition our website, please be sure to join us on Facebook for daily updates, articles, lively dialogues and to interact with others who understand. In the interim, feel free to also check out:
