Effective today, Texas became the 9th state to have a designated uterine fibroid awareness month! In addition, the City of Dallas and Dallas County officially followed suit in recognizing July as Uterine Fibroid Awareness Month. This amazing accomplishment did not happen overnight. It was thanks to the time and efforts of many individuals, spearheaded by Texas fibroid specialist and DCMS member Dr. Suzanne Slonim.

Dr. Slonim stepped beyond Fibroid Institute Dallas to bring this important topic to the doorstep of legislators in Texas. As a result, State Representative Senfronia Thompson presented the legislation for Texas House Bill 1966—designation of July as Uterine Fibroids Awareness Month and House Bill 1967—Improved Uterine Fibroid Education and Research. Both bills were signed and officially became law today.

For the millions of women who suffer with fibroids, we want to raise awareness and eradicate the stigma of talking about menstrual symptoms and help women make informed decisions about their healthcare. Follow Fibroid Free for more great information!
