During her talk, Cooney explained what PCOS is and how prevalent it is, outlined its potential effect on fertility as well as other long-term health complications, discussed treatment options, and offered tips on how patients can talk about PCOS with their doctors.

Her whole lecture is available to watch online. Thanks, Dr. Cooney, for helping so many people connect with great PCOS-related resources!
