WH2020 Live Virtual Symposia Adds Presentation on Uterine Fibroids, a Disease Impacting 80% of African American Women

Omnia Education expands agenda of ‘Women’s Health 2020: Beyond the Annual Visit’ with late-breaking presentation on uterine fibroids that calls attention to a painful and disruptive disorder impacting 40% of women of reproductive age and 80% of African American women

Fort Washington, PA | October 22, 2020

Omnia Education has expanded its Women’s Health 2020 (WH2020) Virtual Live Conference with the addition of ‘New Horizons in the Personalized Management of Uterine Fibroids’, a topic of critical importance to healthcare professionals. Data show 40% of women of reproductive age and 80% of African American women suffer from this painful and disruptive disorder.

Working in partnership with The Fibroid Foundation Omnia Education is highlighting issues of health equity in uterine fibroids. Despite the high prevalence of uterine fibroids, they remain underdiagnosed, and medical management is underutilized. Uterine fibroids are the leading indication for hysterectomy, making the impact on African American women particularly burdensome.

 

“Moving to virtual live conference means clinicians can remain active in their ongoing education, and on a regional basis.”

President, Omnia Education

 

“We are excited to join forces with Omnia Education in this timely educational outreach,” said Sateria Venable, Co-Founder of the Fibroid Foundation. “As a patient and advocate for uterine fibroids, I know how important it is that clinicians receive information that can dramatically improve the patient experience.”

For more than 16 years, Omnia Education’s programs have transformed the practice of women’s health. This year the symposia transitioned from in-person conferences to virtual live symposia to maximize reach and learner engagement.

“Moving to virtual live conference means clinicians can remain active in their ongoing education, and on a regional basis,” said Rob Braun, president of Omnia Education. “Our agenda is rich with topics relevant to the female patient, and adding uterine fibroids to the agenda is timely.”

WH2020 schedule includes four Virtual Live Conferences. The first conferences two took place on October 2 (Midwest Region) and October 9 (Southwest Region), educating more than 2,000 clinicians in women’s health.

The remaining two conferences are scheduled for:

  • November 13 (Pasadena, West region)
  • November 20 (New York, East region)

Post-event, users have access to on-demand videos and podcasts.

‘New Horizons in the Personalized Management of Uterine Fibroids’ is supported through an educational grant from AbbVie.
