ASRM Recognizes National Infertility Awareness Week

Even during this national health crisis, ASRM is committed to highlighting National Infertility Awareness Week (April 19-25) and honoring those with infertility who are struggling to build a family. NIAW became a federally recognized health observance by the Department of Health and Human Services in 2010.  

We encourage you all to lift up the infertility community this week by supporting patients using Telehealth and social media to share your support and help build awareness. Here are a couple of easy ways to do so: 

  • Share your support on social media. Consider a Facebook or Instagram post using #NIAW2020 to announce it's about National Infertility Awareness Week and demonstrate your support for patients.
  • Tweet using #NIAW2020, and consider sending a message to your Congressional delegates (find yours here), asking them to join you in raising awareness about infertility.
  • Wear Orange on Wednesday April 22.  RESOLVE created the #WearOrange campaign and asks those impacted by/passionate about raising awareness regarding infertility to share images of themselves wearing orange this Wednesday, April 22. Be sure to use the hashtag if you post.
  • Join Us May 20 for the first-ever *VIRTUAL* ASRM/RESOLVE Advocacy Day! With advocates already registered from nearly all 50 states already, this promises to be an incredibly powerful day. Advocates will be holding virtual meetings with Members of the US Senate and House of Representatives and we'd love to have you join us. Register here before May 15. 
National Infertility Awareness Week unites millions of Americans who want to remove the stigmas and barriers that stand in the way of building families. Tell your story and empower your patients to join the conversation.
