The Fibroids Project Connects with Chair of OB/GYN at Duke University Medical Center
New York, NY, September 16, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- The Fibroids Project (FibroidsProject.com) will be interviewing Dr. Haywood Brown, chair of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Duke University Medical Center on September 24, 2010 in regards to uterine fibroids.
In line with the social nature of the project, an open call for questions has been issued to women across various social networks (i.e. Twitter, Facebook, etc). The goal of the FibroidsProject.com is to connect women suffering from symptomatic uterine fibroids with subject matter experts.
Renee Brown, the co-founder of FibroidsProject.com, suffered from symptomatic uterine fibroids, which culminated with a myomectomy surgery to remove them. She remembers the months of confusion, of talking to other sufferers, of desperately trying to collate information and finding it too scanty – but unlike most other patients, she's decided to do something about it and partnered with technologist/co-founder, Nnamdi G. Osuagwu.
Fibroidsproject.com, which officially launched September 1st, 2010, intends to be a beacon of hope to uterine fibroid patients everywhere, a place where they can glean accurate and up-to-date information about their condition and where they can meet other patients with the condition to exchange information and give and receive support.
The Fibroids Project is the brainchild of Renee Brown, Career Transformation Strategist and owner of Your Career My Advice and Nnamdi G. Osuagwu, Information Technology/Social Media Consultant and owner of Strategic Generation. The Fibroids Project is the duo's first venture into Social Entrepreneurship. Its mission is to: “Make Life Better for Women with Fibroids.”
