The POP Awareness Campaign is an initiative to create much needed awareness about the common female health issue pelvic organ prolapse prior to POP occurring rather than after diagnosis. With recognition of symptoms and causes comes the potential for earlier detection and less aggressive treatment. POP is a global women's health issue. When not working on the POP Awareness Campaign, Medhelp.org, or the APOPS support network, Sherrie likes to spend time with her local Special Olympics group and will donate a portion of book proceeds to her Special Olympics kids. Sherrie Palm hosts educational seminars on POP. Her goals are: 1.Create awareness about pelvic organ prolapse and help women become comfortable talking about it. 2.Make the acronym POP for pelvic organ prolapse become commonly known. 3.Encourage the medical community to start educating women about the importance of of pc (pelvic floor) muscle awareness and Kegel exercises at the first pelvic exam rather than waiting until POP becomes an active physical condition. 4.Establish additional charters of the global support network APOPS to connect women in all phases of pelvic organ prolapse treatment. 5.Create awareness of POP issues that occur in undeveloped areas of the world.
