Heather Guidone, BCPA, is the Program Director of the Center for Endometriosis Care. For more than 25 years, she has focused on “bench to beltway to bedside” efforts in endometriosis education, research, policy reform, patient-centered caregiving, health literacy, patient engagement/adherence, and much more. She is a board-certified patient advocate, health educator and clinical CME/medical writer, and a CITI-certified research co-investigator. Most importantly, she is an individual who has struggled with and ultimately overcame advanced endometriosis and infertility. She volunteers her time and service to several endeavors as a board member, advisor, speaker, abstract reviewer, and member of many councils, committees, and special interest groups. She has contributed to countless books, articles, and publications on endometriosis, pelvic pain, and women’s health, and remains an active and engaged member of several professional health organizations. Her priority focus remains on reducing the time to diagnosis and fighting for access to effective treatments in order to improve outcomes; collaborative network building among multidisciplinary providers; and ensuring patient stakeholder representation across the fields of endometriosis and pelvic pain.
