Monday, March 8:  News Articles

March is Endometriosis Awareness Month! Endometriosis is a debilitating and often painful disease where the uterine lining grows outside of the uterus. It affects approximately 1 in 10 women and can have significant impacts on daily living and quality of life. Unfortunately, there is no cure for endometriosis, and it can take up to 8 years on average to diagnose.

Meet Sophia McCray, one of our PRICE team members working with Dr. Yenisel Cruz-Almeida. Sophia joined the team as a sophomore in college to become involved in geriatric medicine and transform our aging population through research. Her future goal is to become a Physician Assistant specializing in the field of Geriatric Medicine and to help older adults in her community and in the nation by enabling them to live longer and healthier lives. In her free time, Sophia enjoys exploring Gainesville’s many nature trails with her fur-baby Layla.
