*Special Thanks to our Sponsors*
Thank you for your interest in starting a Power Up Group. There are 2 different types of groups we support. The first is a Power Up for PCOS Power Up Group and the second is a group that is Powered Up by Power Up for PCOS. The second option is for groups that are already established that want to use our education. We welcome you to look over the differences below to determine which option would be right for you. Please see below the table for more information on what you will need to start a group and to complete an application.
Special Note about Fundraising:
Power Up for PCOS has several fundraising opportunities that are held world-wide each year. Both groups are able to participate in worldwide events. ALL proceeds from worldwide Power Up for PCOS events will be required to be given to Power Up for PCOS/InCYST Institute for Hormone Health. All groups are encouraged to have your own fundraising events as well. If you are a official Power Up for PCOS group, you are required to give all money raised to Power Up for PCOS/InCYST Institute for Hormone Health. InCYST gives us so much more information than we could ever pay for and we are going to make sure they are supported fully by Power Up for PCOS.
General items needed to start and run a successful group:
Laptop or access to a laptop
Access to a printer to print handouts for group meetings
Just a few hours a month
Special Requirements for groups that will be Powered Up by Power Up for PCOS:
Since we are providing you with very extensive education and support, we ask that you advertise our events and groups and encourage others to participate. If you have a website or facebook page, we ask that you post a link to http://www.powerupforpcos.com on it as well.
Once you have decided you are ready to start a group, please complete the application below.
Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is an endocrine disorder that is thought to affect nearly 20% of all females in the world (1 in 5 women). It is a cluster of complicated symptoms that are not the same for every woman. Women can also have symptoms but may not necessarily have cysts on their ovaries. It is believed to be fundamentally caused by insensitivity to the hormone insulin.
