"Below the Belt" Special Screening Event

Exposing the Crisis of Endometriosis Care

Yale Ob/Gyn is hosting a special screening of the documentary Below the Belt [directed and produced by Shannon Cohn]. It follows the challenges of patients with endometriosis and exposes the widespread health disparities faced by women.

Before the screening, former Senator and Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, will provide a pre-recorded video introduction. Following the documentary, a panel of Ob/Gyn faculty, director/producer Shannon Cohn, and guests from around Connecticut will speak about their personal experiences with endometriosis.

This screening and discussion will be an enlightening event for anyone who wants to better understand how societal taboos, gender bias, misinformation, and barriers to care can harm millions within our health system. It will also explore the ways in which we can improve health care for everyone.
