Endocrine Society to Host Twitter Chat on PCOS

The Endocrine Society on Thursday will host a Twitter chat focused on polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) to coincide with women’s health month, moderated by Society member Genevieve S. Neal-Perry, MD, PhD, who directs the University of Washington Medicine’s Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility Center.

Nearly 10 percent of women have PCOS, and it is one of the leading causes of infertility in women. Participants in the Twitter chat will discuss this disorder’s causes, diagnosis, and treatment options.

Log on to Twitter Thursday, September 22, from 12:30 PM—1:30 PM Eastern for this event, and use the hashtag #EndoChat.
