On behalf of AAGL and the Foundation Board of Directors, we would like to congratulate board member, Shannon Cohn, on the successful premiere of her second film. Shannon is the creator and director of an endometriosis documentary titled Below the Belt. This film focuses on endometriosis through the lens of four patients urgently searching for answers to their mysterious symptoms. Shannon recruited Hillary Clinton, Rosario Dawson, Corinne Fox, and Mae Whitman to serve as executive producers of the movie. We are so proud of you, Shannon, for this important accomplishment and for your mission to spread awareness about endometriosis. Thank you to the Foundation Board members who attended the New York City premiere and to those that served with Shannon on a panel discussion.
