Webinars on timely topics in reproductive medicine

First-Line Approach to Endometriosis-Related Infertility: Surgery or ART?

There is a strong association of endometriosis with infertility, with a vivid debate whether surgery or ART should be used as first-line treatment in a variety of clinical circumstances. This webinar, presented in a debate format, should provide the audience with an up-to-date assessment on the pros and cons of either approach.

Trends in Nutrition: What Should We Be Eating?

Many health care professionals receive little nutrition training, and it can be difficult to determine which recommendations are evidence-based and health-promoting. In this webinar, we will discuss where some diet strategies fall short and how we can practically and sustainably eat in a more healthful way.

Personal Health Management and Family Building with Digital Tools

The lecture will explore the known relationship between PCOS and BMI and how wearable technology may help participants understand their health, the function of wearables collecting data, and its implication on PCOS research, as we develop new interventions to assist patients with reducing BMI and tracking their PCOS. This presentation is followed by a question and answer session that will focus on the cohort characteristics, use of wearables, and health metrics of participants in the Apple Women’s Health Study.

Scaling Weight Management and Fertility in PCOS

Women with PCOS and infertility often struggle with managing overweight issues and its potential impact on success in fertility treatments. This webinar addresses lifestyle interventions and weight management cases in the fertility clinic. A panel of experts will review current evidence and best practices for addressing weight concerns in women with PCOS seeking pregnancy.

How to Improve fertility outcomes (in the kitchen)!

Both women and men ask how to improve their chances of building a family, and yet the role of diet is frequently overlooked. We have research supporting how a whole food, plant forward diet can improve outcomes, and how the practical skills of cooking can fill the gap. With this cooking demonstration and some enlightening details, learn how to include food and nutrition as part of your dialogue for family building.

Beyond the Basics: Complex Topics in Expanded Carrier Screening

Expanded carrier screening (ECS) has become a routine evaluation in the fertility setting. This webinar will dive into some of the more nuanced topics related to ECS that can complicate patient care. These topics will be highlighted using case examples, followed by practical solutions for report interpretation, patient counseling, and additional testing needs.

Ovarian Reserve Testing in the Patient of Unproven Fertility

This webinar will discuss the utility of ovarian reserve testing in the setting of untested fertility. Dr. Marsh will present on the ethnic differences in measures of ovarian reserve and Dr. Su will talk about ovarian reserve as it relates to fertility preservation. Dr. Anne Steiner will moderate.

Challenges In Interpreting Results From Pre-Implantation Genetic Testing for Aneuploidy (PGT-A)

The purpose of this webinar is to introduce and explore the uses, benefits, and limitations of non-invasive Preimplantation Genetic Testing for Aneuploidy (niPGT-A) in laboratory and clinical practice. The webinar will be covering the technicalities and recent studies of niPGT-A, as well as a discussion about the considerations of result interpretation from a laboratory and clinical genetic counselor perspective. Real-world case examples of discordant results between niPGT-A and trophectoderm biopsy PGT-A will be discussed to display limitations of PGT-A technology, so as to best prepare ordering physicians, genetic counselors, and most importantly, patients, about the potential results and their impact in the clinical setting.

Donor Anonymity: Past Promises, Evolving Technologies, and Current Realities

This webinar will address egg, sperm and embryo donation; past anonymity versus the new reality of disclosure or becoming known due to advancing technologies; how intended parents and donors should be counseled in today's environment; the stakeholders we serve; ethical obligations; and available resources.

Preconception Family History Cases: The Importance of Risk Assessment by a Genetic Counselor

The family history is an important basic component of a pre-IVF screening protocol. Genetic counselors are poised to collect the most comprehensive history from patients and guide the clinician on appropriate workup when genetic conditions are identified in a family. As with any screening program, it is best applied to all patients in the clinic in order to capture all relevant cases.
