Chicago, IL (PRWEB) May 16, 2012
Fertility Centers of Illinois is hosting the 9th annual Midwest Reproductive Symposium (MRS) showcased in Chicago May 17-19th, 2012. Global industry leaders in the field of reproductive endocrinology and infertility, will be present to discuss the latest concepts, techniques, and treatment modalities relevant to the practice of advanced reproductive medicine. Physicians and industry professionals across the United States and from Canada, Russia, Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Turkey and United Arab Emirates will be present.
Topics of study include scientific advancements in genetic screening and embryo analysis. Current capabilities now allow physicians to test embryos prior to in-vitro fertilization in order to screen for genetic abnormalities such as Down Syndrome. Sophisticated analysis techniques can also prevent miscarriage and aid in healthy pregnancy.
Dr. Angeline Beltsos, medical director of Fertility Centers of Illinois and MRS chairperson, explains that symposium curriculum will encompass all aspects of treatment. “We will work together to improve patient treatment outcomes by taking a close, collaborative look at several facets of infertility treatment,” she says. “The Midwest Reproductive Symposium is an opportunity for participants to advance the care that we provide to our patients and take a big step forward to the communities that we serve.”
Furthermore, we have added a new program to provide a comprehensive approach to complete medical care: The Nurse Practicum for nurses heading to Chicago from all over the US and Canada, as well as The Business Minds program for fertility clinic business managers. Nurses will be educated on providing a superior patient experience and improving patient treatment outcomes. Business managers will join forces to review best practices and provide the best possible patient experience.
The MRS will take place at the Drake Hotel in downtown Chicago. For more information visit http://midwestreproductionsymposium.org.
