Echoing Voices of Disparities in Endometriosis through Education and Awareness

EndoEcho Initiative

Lesley Boadu, a recent University of Richmond graduate with aspirations to become an OB/GYN, stands at the forefront of a collaborative endeavor with EndoArmy. EndoArmy seeks to empower Lesley’s efforts in creating the EndoEcho initiative, focused on catalyzing systemic change within gynecologic medicine, with a particular emphasis on addressing healthcare disparities. Lesley and her supportive network hope to educate and empower underrepresented patients and individuals, with a special focus on youth, people of color, and the LGBTQ community to promote advocacy for their health effectively.
