On September 26, 2020, David Abbott, PhD of the UW Ob-Gyn Division of Reproductive Sciences, appeared on a panel as part of PCOS Awareness Symposium 2020! Abbott joined the panel “PCOS Legislative Advocacy: How You Can Make a Difference.”

Abbott provided a research expert contribution to individual patient advocacy visits with congressional representatives or senators to lobby for more resources for PCOS in both the clinical and research arenas, including NIH funding. 

The 2020 PCOS Awareness Symposium featured world-leading experts on PCOS and brought together clinicians, researchers, patients and their supporters to share their experiences, insights and the latest updates about the condition. Abbott was a natural choice for the legislative advocacy panel, as he has been an important part of legislative outreach around PCOS in the past.

Incredible work, Dr. Abbott!
