As part of the World Day Against Pain, the ANALGESIA Institute organized for the 4th consecutive year a public conference on pain.
This year, the Foundation chose to highlight a painful pathology, still unknown, that affects millions of women: ENDOMETRIOSIS.
More than 300 people attended the event at the IAE Clermont-Auvergne (Management School) but also behind the screens, as the conference was broadcasted via Facebook Live.
First of all, Professor Alain Eschalier, President of the ANALGESIA Institute, briefly presented the Foundation's mission and projects. The special guest of the evening, Professor Nicolas Bourdel (Gynaecological Surgeon at the University Hospital of Clermont-Ferrand), spoke about the causes of endometriosis and its therapeutic options. His words were then illustrated by the testimony of Mrs. Ophélie Garcia, a patient and member of EndoFrance, who explained her path and shared her experience with the public.
