DENVER (PRWEB) January 29, 2007
Colorado infertility specialist, William B. Schoolcraft, M.D., medical director and founder of the Colorado Center for Reproductive Medicine, was unanimously elected 2007 Medical Director for The American Fertility Association, a national organization that educates the public about fertility options, reproductive health, and parenting.
"The AFA is thrilled to have Dr. Schoolcraft as part of its Board of Directors," said Pamela Madsen, Executive Director of the AFA. "His innovative scientific and medical approach to reproductive health and fertility reflect the AFA's commitment to its membership in providing the most comprehensive approach to family building."
In his new role as Medical Director, Dr. Schoolcraft will work closely with each Board member and Executive Director to expand the association's mission to include all aspects of reproductive health. He will act as ambassador and liaison to professional and medical groups gathering information about medical treatments, options, coping techniques, legal and insurance concerns, and other matters serving the unique needs of men and women confronted with infertility issues.
"I am looking forward to working with The AFA to support their understanding of reproductive health and fertility as a lifelong experience," said Dr. Schoolcraft. "Raising the public's awareness about new technologies and developments associated with reproductive medicine gives them options they may not have ever thought about, such as egg freezing, an increasingly important and successful option for many women."
Dr. Schoolcraft completed his medical training at the University of Kansas and finished his residency in obstetrics and gynecology in 1983 at the UCLA School of Medicine in Los Angeles, California. In 1983, he began a private practice in the field of obstetrics, gynecology and infertility in Denver, Colorado.
The Colorado Center for Reproductive Medicine was established in 1987 upon Dr. Schoolcraft's completion of specialized training at UCLA in the area of infertility. Within its first five years of operation, the Center and Dr. Schoolcraft had begun developing a national reputation for excellence in both pregnancy and delivery rates. As an award-winning researcher, Dr. Schoolcraft has also authored numerous articles on infertility.
