Endometriosis

This week we are discussing endometriosis.  Endometriosis is an often painful disorder in which tissue similar to the tissue that normally lines the inside of your uterus — the endometrium — grows outside your uterus. Endometriosis most commonly involves your ovaries, fallopian tubes and the tissue lining your pelvis. Rarely, endometrial tissue may spread beyond pelvic organs.

 

Returning to our show to discuss endo is our guest Asiya Rafiq.  She joined us last week to talk about adaptive clothing.  She has an educational background in Psychology, and is a Certified Applied Behavioral Analyst from Dubai.  She is also a Certified Volunteer in Special Olympics with the United Arab Emirates.  From a business standpoint she is an advertising professional, a Modest Fashion Designer (Specialist Adaptive Wear), and a Fashion Virtual Reality Filmmaker.  She just completed her film on parental separation which addressed an important issue of how 'parental separation' can affect a child's mental health.  Her films cover real stories with social causes, giving voice to the voiceless.
