In a letter to the House Energy and Commerce Health Subcommittee, CARE About Fibroids and 17 leading fibroids and women's health stakeholders joined a letter of support penned by the Black Womens' Health Imperative for The Uterine Fibroid Research and Education Act (H.R.6383/S.4397). Sponsored by Rep. Yvette Clarke (D-NY) and Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), the bill would direct the National Institutes of Health and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to conduct and expand upon uterine fibroids research, as well as Medicaid coverage of treatment options for this health condition. CARE About Fibroids is proud to join BWHI and our stakeholder partners in supporting this vitally important effort.
Today, Responsum Health (Responsum) announced the launch of an online empowerment, knowledge, and support platform for women with uterine fibroids (UF)—a condition that affects 70% to 80% of all women by the age of 50. Provided in partnership with The White Dress Project and CARE About Fibroids—two of the nation’s leading fibroids support organizations—and with support and collaboration from AbbVie, a global research-driven biopharmaceutical company, Responsum for Fibroids is available for free via web browser or mobile app
