Yarning about Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a condition that commonly affects Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women. Terori Hareko-Samios is a health worker at the Royal Women's Hospital who passionately believes that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women should have the right information about this condition, to know how best to keep them well. Jean Hailes joined Terori in a partnership with the Royal Women's Hospital to develop a resource aimed at meeting the needs of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community. The art work used in the booklet was provided by renowned artist, Justice Nelson, and the images are of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women.

This booklet is essential reading for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women who wish to better understand a condition that may affect them, their daughters or the women in their community. It is also a vital resource for health professionals, such as GP's, diabetes educators, nurses, dietitians, health workers, endocrinologists, gynaecologists, etc. to provide to their clients.
