Listen to Endometriosis Special Broadcast - Live to Air in the 3RRR Performance space56:0030 March 2023

A special show this week, with the team broadcasting live from the 3RRR performance space.

This week’s show focuses on all things Endometriosis, with special thanks to our sponsor, the Hudson Institute.

Maree Davenport Chief Executive Officer and Director of Endometriosis Australia provides an explanation on what Endometriosis actually is, and also what Endometriosis Australia does.

Alison Deslandes from Australian Society of Ultrasound in Medicine (ASUM) joins the team to explain how Ultrasound technology is used to detect Endometriosis.

Dr Kate Tyson Surgeon – from the inaugural Centre Director of the newly established endometriosis Centre of Excellence at Epworth HealthCare, the Julia Argyrou Endometriosis Centre

Dr Fiona Cousins, Researcher, from the Hudson Research Institute

Kate Kenfield a Writer, Speaker, former sex educator and Endometriosis patient (and also Dr Shane’s wife) shares her story of what it’s like to live with Endometriosis.

Note: At one point during this broadcast, endometriosis was incorrectly defined as “endometrial tissue that can grow anywhere in the body”. The correct description is “Endometriosis is a condition in which cells that are similar to the ones that line your uterus start growing in other areas of your body”.
