A recent segment on WBUR’s Radio Boston, called “Two women share what it’s like living with endometriosis,” opens with Boston University student Yaël Krinsky and her father Alvin describing Yaël’s yearslong journey with endometriosis and the toll it has taken on her and their family.
The segment continues with host Tiziana Dearing interviewing CGR Director Linda Griffith about research she and others are doing to learn more and treat this disease. Dr. Griffith explains how millions of people live with the severe pain of endometriosis, but most wait years for a diagnosis. She shares personal stories, including how she (like Krinsky) lived with endometriosis, undiagnosed then inaccurately treated, for years. Dr. Griffith tells listeners why that happens, and the status of research that is helping improve the odds for better diagnosis and treatments of endometriosis in the future.
This segment aired on March 17, 2022.
