Get Involved: ENPOWR Project

Posted on July 27, 2017

The ENPOWR™ (ENdometriosis: Promoting Outreach and Wide Recognition) Project is a school and community based endometriosis education program, the only one of its kind in the United States. ENPOWR™ raises awareness and promotes treatment-seeking behavior through an interactive lesson. In 2016, the EFA launched the Endo EduKit to bring this critical education to scale across the country and around the world. The lessons are available free-of-charge to teachers and volunteers.

What people are saying about ENPOWR

  • "I learned that I may have the disease and that my long periods and heavy cramps may not be normal. I shouldn't have to miss school for this.” - female, age 16
  • “I learned that if I feel something is seriously wrong with my body that I should follow my instincts and seek help and not listen to people telling me I'm being dramatic.” - female, age 17
  • “That just because endo affects women, it is very important and not something I should ignore” - male student
  • “One of our students was not going to be able to graduate because she had too many absences. After she heard your presentation, she was diagnosed with endometriosis. Her absences were excused as a result, and she will be graduating on time in June!” – Health teacher, Albany High School
  • “As I was leaving the school this evening, one of the student's approached me and told me she felt her doctor thought her painful discomfort was normal and she would grow out of it. But now she feels she should see a specialist. She was going to listen to her body and take control!” – Living Environment teacher, The Beacon School
  • "The ENPOWR Project is bringing light to an important concern for teens. Many of these teenagers can now spread the word about endometriosis to their family members and friends.” – SPARK Counselor, Leon M. Goldstein High School for the Sciences
