Centering Patients with Fibroids
Centering groups focus on providing excellent healthcare, interactive learning and success in building relationships and community between group members. The Centering Healthcare model is being used to develop a longitudinal patient education and empowerment group. Group topics will focus on symptoms and treatment options, and specific sessions will be dedicated to discussing the patient experience.
Our team is comprised of gynecologists, reproductive endocrinology and infertility specialists, interventional radiologists, patients, hematologists, and a program coordinator.
This project is funded by the Forward for Health Equity Grant from Myovant Sciences.
