Event Description

What? UNC Pelvic Health at Rex will host an educational event as part of a public awareness campaign to help women impacted by pelvic floor disorders (PFDs) and minimize any discomfort around having conversations about and seeking treatment for pelvic floor disorders. The campaign “Break Free from PFDs” aims to help women understand the facts about PFDs and empower them with information on how to pursue individualized solutions for improved quality of life. The campaign was launched by the PFD Alliance this fall.

Why? New research issued by the PFD Alliance finds that 90 percent of Americans underestimate or are unsure about the prevalence of pelvic floor disorders (PFDs) which impacts approximately one in three women at some point during their lives. This means many women under treat PFDs and suffer in silence.
