“Every day someone is told they have infertility which can often leave the person feeling isolated and powerless. RESOLVE is delighted to work with medical practices and organizations across the country to call attention to the disease of infertility and remind those suffering, they are not alone. In fact, RESOLVE provides free support services in communities nationwide,” said Barbara Collura, RESOLVE’s President/CEO. “This is an important week for our community to rally around the cause of infertility.”
Founded by RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association, NIAW is a movement that raises awareness about the disease of infertility and encourages the public to take charge of their reproductive health. Each year the infertility community comes together for one week to focus on ensuring that people trying to conceive know the guidelines for seeing a specialist when they are trying to conceive; enhancing public understanding that infertility is a disease that needs and deserves attention; and educating legislators about the disease of infertility and how it impacts people in their state. In 2010, NIAW became a federally recognized health observance by the Department of Health and Human Services. For more information, visit http://www.resolve.org/niaw
