When Spring arrives each year I am always awed by the arrival of beautiful new blossoms. I consider this annual rebirth to be a true treasure.
This year Spring coincides with many new beginnings for The Fibroid Foundation as well. In recent months I have spent a lot of time exploring growth opportunities for The Fibroid Foundation in the Washington, DC area. Being a native of Maryland, I had the added benefit of visiting with Family during my trips. I decided that it would be beneficial professionally and personally for me to return to my home state. Therefore, at the end of March, I made the big move back to Maryland. I had spent 14 years in Chicago. Although leaving Chicago was difficult, I am certain that taking this faith leap is a wonderful, exciting, sound move for me and for the future of The Fibroid Initiative.
We hit the ground running with another new beginning – the first ever Fibroid Summit at Howard University. Howard hosted many prominent fibroid-focused physicians, advocates and patients at a
2-day conference. In the coming weeks I will share, as well as expand on some of the very interesting topics that were discussed at the conference.
In addition, we had the pleasure of being interviewed by the Howard Hilltop newspaper and the Russ Parr Morning Show, with Mayo Clinic. New Beginnings Abound!
Please send positive thoughts our way as the fibroid journey establishes roots in a new city.
I think that we are off on a fantastic new path!!
