Learn how USA Fibroid Centers is opening more outpatient clinics in communities most impacted by the fibroid epidemic and is working to raise awareness by educating women about the common symptoms.

The discussion series “Break the Silence, Break the Behavior” focuses on how to get more conversations started to share the stories of women who suffer with fibroids and the knowledge that Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE) can eliminate the perception that women suffering with fibroids should opt for hysterectomies as the only solution.
