Hysterectomy Education the Focus of Upcoming Conference

For women who've been told they need a hysterectomy, medical options and information can be overwhelming. In an ongoing survey conducted by the Hysterectomy Educational Resources and Services (HERS) Foundation, 99.7 percent of women reported that they weren't informed about the functions of the female organs or the consequences of their removal prior to hysterectomy.

The HERS foundation was established in 1982 to meet the need for information and services concerning hysterectomy. Their Web site contains facts and educational materials for women to learn more about the types of hysterectomy and the potential side effects, as well as a primer on female anatomy.

The group is hosting its Twenty-Sixth Hysterectomy Conference in Pasadena, CA November 2-3, 2007, and will include speakers such as Dr. Mitchell Levine, of Harvard Medical School and Robert Myers, attorney and women's health advocate, plus many others.
