|Each year ASRM honors individuals or organizations that have provided distinguished service to ASRM. Recipients are selected based on their scientific, leadership, organizational, political or societal service contributions to ASRM, reproductive medicine and/or reproductive medicine patients. In 2014 the Society recognizes the contributions made to the fields of reproductive medicine through advocacy on behalf of patients by Barbara L. Collura, M.A. As the President and Chief Executive Officer of RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association since 2006, Ms. Collura has demonstrated extraordinary leadership and social and political service to reproductive medicine, reproductive medicine patients, and to ASRM.
|She excels at representing the voices and interests of individuals with infertility, at motivating volunteers around the country to speak up about the disease, and at combating threatening legislation. She has worked closely with ASRM, and, in particular, with the J. Benjamin Younger Office of Public Affairs, on many of these efforts, and her extraordinary contributions and effectiveness merit recognition. Without her leadership, in vitro fertilization might well be illegal in several states.
