Thirst for Knowledge - Understanding endometriosis

Location: Ombrellos Kitchen and Bar Dunedin or register to watch on zoom

Despite affecting many wāhine in our community, we still do not understand what causes endometriosis; it is hard to diagnose, and the management options do not help everyone.
Join Associate Professor Jane Girling from the Department of Anatomy, Otago School of Medical Sciences as she discusses the work that is being done internationally to find better diagnostics and treatments and to determine just what causes endometriosis.
This will be held at Ombrellos Kitchen and Bar, Dunedin from 5.30 pm. You can also watch on zoom from anywhere in the country.

Facebook Live Q&A with Karra Eloff

Location: Facebook Live

We held the Facebook Live Q&A with Karra Eloff on Thursday 14th July 2022. This event was live-streamed and made available for FREE for our endo community across the country.

Kara, the author of, “The Chronic Pain Couple”, will speak briefly about her book and how chronic pain impacts intimate relationships and then answer questions submitted by YOU and collated from her event “A Remarkable Relationship In Spite Of Chronic Pain with Kara Eloff”.

The struggle to maintain joy & a fulfilling relationship while coping with chronic illness and pain is a serious problem for millions of people today. Kara is a wife and mother who suffers from chronic pain illnesses including endometriosis and adenomyosis.

‘The Chronic Pain Couple is an authentic, meaningful and highly practical guide to safeguarding and restoring relationships touched by chronic pain. Rather than observing the topic from a safe distance, Karra dives in boots-and-all with an account that is both deeply personal and accessible, all the while grounded in evidence-based research and practice. A must-read for any couple or individual navigating the twin challenges of managing chronic pain and aspiring to a mutually satisfying relationship, and for the health professionals who support them.’

— Dr Gemma Roux, Clinical Psychologist, Director of Flourish Psychology and Communicator
