It’s National Infertility Awareness Week (April 20-26, 2014) and ASRM is joining with other organizations for a Twitter Chat on Infertility.
Did you know that infertility is about as common as diabetes in the United States? Yet myths and misperceptions about this condition abound. Join us to learn the facts about infertility and about new research that is helping us understand infertility—and that may one day provide for better treatments.
Also participating are: the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD), the US Department of Health and Human Services’ Office on Women’s Health (OWH), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (CDC NCCDPHP), and RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association.
When: Wednesday, April 23, 2–3 p.m. EDT
Who: We welcome everyone—including couples, health care providers, students, and researchers.
How: Follow the #InfertilityChat hashtag.
Co-hosts: The chat will be hosted by:
- NICHD: @NICHD_NIH
- OWH: @womenshealth
- ASRM: @reprodmed
- RESOLVE: @resolveorg
- CDC NCCDPHP: @CDCChronic
