DES Daughter TOOLKIT
Here is an invaluable resource to help empower DES Daughters to better communicate with their doctors and advocate for the health care they need.
Too many doctors either don’t know about DES exposure or have failed to keep up with the latest research. The DES Daughter TOOLKIT provides important DES information in a user-friendly format for doctors. It’s all available here on this website, but by combining it in one document the messages about increased medical risks and proper screenings are readily conveyed.
It empowers DES Daughters. Hand the TOOLKIT to your health care provider and it does the explaining about DES for you!
Advocate for Continued DES Research
You can’t do it by yourself – but together we can. Without DES Action’s push for research and advocacy for continued funding, it would not have happened.
DES Action stays in touch with scientists about their DES studies and keeps them aware of health issues being experienced by those of us who were exposed to DES.
By doing so you join thousands of individuals who recognize the importance of having a powerful voice for the DES community. In return, you stay informed and feel good about supporting an important cause.
No one else will do it for us.
