A Message from Our Founder
Summer is here, and the world is alive! There are so many advantages to summer for those of us striving for healthy lifestyles. There are numerous outdoor activities, both organized group/team activities, and individual endeavors to take on. There is fresh local produce available from farm stands and gardens that tantalizes the taste buds and provides us with the best nutrients available. The days are long, and there are options for swimming and other summer-specific activities. Just to get out of the house and...move!
Make the most of this summer, but also remember that September will mark this year's PCOS Awareness Month. As you work toward your healthy summer achievements, think about what you can do to make sure that your overall health is your focus throughout the year. Awareness of PCOS is not about identifying with a disease, it's about recognizing the advantages to healthy living, and the impact that has to your quality of life and to your longevity.
PCOSA is now accepting donations for our PCOS Awareness Auction, to be held during the month of September. Do you have an item to donate? Can you solicit something from a local business or friend? We are looking for hotel certificates, restaurant gift certificates, spa services, handmade items, gift baskets, theme park tickets...you name it! Please contact Andrea at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about donating an item or items.
In the meantime, enjoy your summer! Go outside and play!
