March is Endometriosis Awareness Month and a range of promotions are being planned worldwide to help raise awareness. West Lothian Council Executive approved that lanterns in the roof of the Civic Centre are to be ‘Lit Up Yellow’ for the weekend of the 6-8 March in support. The council’s healthy working lives representatives are also set to challenge staff to commit to walking either 31 miles or 31 kilometres in March 2020. Materials supplied by Endo Warriors will also be distributed and displayed by council services throughout the area.
West Lothian Council leader Lawrence Fitzpatrick said: “Living with Endometriosis can have significant impacts on women’s home and work life. West Lothian Council is proud to support the work of Endo Warriors by playing our part in trying to raise awareness of the condition and hopefully this can help towards finding better treatment for those suffering with Endometriosis.”
