Rockville, MD (PRWEB) August 22, 2013
Shady Grove Fertility is pleased to announce its participation with GLOW, a new technology app designed to help families solve fertility issues including the costs of treatment. GLOW is the brainchild of PayPal co-creator Max Levchin.
In addition to GLOW’s insightful mobile application there is also Glow First, which is described by the company as “a not-for-profit fund that women can elect to participate in, designed to help offset the high cost of fertility treatments. Participants contribute $50 each month for 10 months into a designated pool, which is divided equally amongst any participants who did not achieve a natural pregnancy after 10 months of actively trying to conceive while using the Glow app.” Chairman and Co-founder Levchin has already donated one million dollars to the fund.
This marks a strategic alliance that will target a new generation of patients facing fertility challenges while increasing education to anyone with a smart phone. As part of Shady Grove Fertility Clinic’s affiliation with the GLOW app, potential users will greatly benefit from one of the nation’s leading centers with extensive medical expertise and longstanding leadership in fertility solutions.
