National Infertility Awareness Week® | April 24 – 30
Fertility CARE: The IVF Center and RESOLVE: The National Infertility Associationwill recognize National Infertility Awareness Week®, April 24 through April 30, joining millions of women and men fighting the disease of infertility, healthcare professionals, mental health professionals, and other thought leaders to promote greater awareness about infertility.
RESOLVE works to improve the lives of women and men living with infertility. 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.
National Infertility Awareness Week® is a movement to educate the public and create greater awareness and understanding about infertility in Florida.
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.
“The theme of National Infertility Awareness Week® is ‘Start Asking,’ and RESOLVE is honored to bring together the entire infertility community to call attention to this disease,” said Barbara Collura, RESOLVE’s President/CEO. “By asking the tough questions about infertility, we not only have an opportunity to raise awareness about this disease, but also to motivate all who are touched by infertility to commit to the cause.”
