Fertility Answers and RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association will recognize National Infertility Awareness Week®, April 23-April 29, joining millions of women and men struggling to build a family, healthcare professionals, mental health professionals, and other thought leaders to promote greater awareness about infertility.
RESOLVE, established in 1974, is dedicated to ensuring that all people challenged in their family building journey reach resolution through being empowered by knowledge, supported by community, united by advocacy, and inspired to act. One in eight U.S. couples has trouble getting pregnant or sustaining a pregnancy. RESOLVE addresses this public health issue by providing community to these women and men, connecting them with others who can help, empowering them to find resolution and giving voice to their demands for access to all family building options.
Since 2002, Louisiana fertility clinic Fertility Answers has helped thousands of couples realize their dreams of building a family. The physicians at Fertility Answers offer comprehensive assisted reproductive services, including in vitro fertilization, egg freezing and pre-implantation genetic diagnosis.
“National Infertility Awareness Week® is a movement to educate the public and create greater awareness and understanding about infertility in Louisiana. Our goal is to help women and men find answers and get the support they need to make important medical decisions and address the medical, emotional, social and economic challenges infertility can present,” said Dr. John Storment, medical director at Fertility Answers.
“The theme of National Infertility Awareness Week® is ‘Listen Up!’ and RESOLVE is honored to bring together the entire infertility community to call attention to the issues facing this community,” said Barbara Collura, RESOLVE’s President/CEO. “By listening to those impacted we have an opportunity to raise awareness about the many barriers millions face in pursuit of a family.”
