Endometriosis Research Center
Support Programs & Groups
Endometriosis Research Center Support & Education Groups have been implemented throughout local communities - and online - with the mission of providing support, education and advocacy efforts to Endometriosis patients and their families around the world. Each respective group offers non-medical advice/guidance; provides a safe and confidential setting in which women and girls can exchange educational information and ideas related to this disease; and raises awareness on a local level. The ERC Members who run these groups donate their time and effort to help reach out to the medical and patient communities in their neighborhoods. Unlike other foundations, there is NEVER a charge to participate in our groups, and they are open to anyone concerned with the disease. If you would like to run a group, please let us know.
If you can't join us in person at one of our regional groups (below), consider joining us online or participate in one of these other established, reputable groups:
A support and education program specifically designed for those 25 yrs. of age and under!
For MEN ONLY: MENDO, Founded by John Blondin and Carey Lewis
A friendly, supportive general education and support group run by Nancy Petersen, RN (non-ERC): Nancy's Nook
NOTE: BE SURE TO REFERENCE "ENDOMETRIOSIS SUPPORT" WHEN CONTACTING GROUP LEADERS VIA EMAIL
ERC Groups are conducted as a regional support network, rather on than the state by state basis in an effort to maximize the potential of the most active of our groups and reach more patients.
