The World Congress on Endometriosis is the event of the year for anyone working in this field! From May 3rd to 6th May 2023, a global community of scientists, clinicians, and advocates who are dedicated to advancing our understanding of this complex condition will congregate at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre, to share and discuss their exciting and cutting-edge research on endometriosis.

The keynote speakers will give thought provoking presentations on a diverse range of topics, including the latest ideas about why only some individuals suffer chronic pain and how we can have treatments with less side effects as well as on topics that are new to the endometriosis audience, such as the role of diet in pain perception and the use of social media as both a positive and negative in advocacy. One of these speakers is Dr Emma Evans, Clinical Psychologist with the Nuffield Department of Women’s and Reproductive Health, University of Oxford, who will share her insights on the impact of endometriosis & the importance of psychological support.  You can read the full speaker programme here.
