Rockville, MD (PRWEB) June 11, 2014
On Saturday, June 21st, Shady Grove Fertility physicians and staff will participate in RESOLVE, the national fertility awareness organization’s annual Walk of Hope. A full morning of activities including a one mile walk begins in National Harbor, MD at 8am. This community event seeks to raise funds for local programs, advocacy, and public awareness initiatives.
It is estimated that one in eight couples are effected by infertility. This means that every American lives in the same community, works with, or is related to someone suffering with infertility. Each year, the Shady Grove Fertility family joins our friends and colleagues at RESOLVE to engage the community at this wonderful event to raise awareness about infertility.
"Helping to build families is the greatest joy at Shady Grove Fertility. For over 22 years our personalized approach to fertility treatment begins with education and awareness," says Jason G. Bromer, M.D. of Shady Grove Fertility. "By shining the spotlight on infertility daily and at the Walk of Hope, RESOLVE continues to be an invaluable organization for our patients."
Shady Grove Fertility and RESOLVE advocate throughout the year on the behalf of those with infertility. As a Visionary Partner with RESOLVE, Shady Grove Fertility supports efforts including legislature to increase access to infertility treatment and promoting social awareness about infertility.
"It’s the hard work of our local volunteers who make the Walk of Hope happen. Their passion for the cause helps RESOLVE’s mission stay strong. RESOLVE is headquartered in McLean, VA and we are honored to bring the Walk of Hope to National Harbor," says Barbara Collura, President and CEO of RESOLVE.
At the Walk of Hope Shady Grove Fertility staff will be on hand to answer questions and lend a hand of support and encouragement to participants, patients, and colleagues.
Shady Grove Fertility is a Visionary Partner with RESOLVE for 2014 and Platinum Sponsor the Walk of Hope DC on June 21st.
