CHICAGO (PRWEB) April 12, 2021
Fertility Centers of Illinois (FCI) will recognize National Infertility Awareness Week® (NIAW) on April 18-24 in the mission to build infertility awareness, shed stigma, and advocate for treatment access for a disease that affects one in eight couples. To help couples access accurate information that can help them achieve parenthood faster, the FCI physician team is answering anonymously submitted questions regarding infertility and hosting a free Virtual Fertility 101 webinar.
An annual initiative founded by RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association, NIAW unites millions of Americans who want to remove the stigmas and barriers that stand in the way of building families. With over 35 years of experience and 42,000 babies born, FCI is a longtime partner and supporter of RESOLVE.
“An endless amount of questions rise to the surface when people experience challenges on their path to parenthood,” explains Dr. Allison Rodgers, a board certified reproductive endocrinologist with Fertility Centers of Illinois who overcame secondary infertility and pregnancy loss to have a family. “We want people to get their questions answered by medical experts and encourage anyone having trouble to seek the help of a specialist.”
Attendees of the hourlong Virtual Fertility 101 webinar on April 22nd will learn about every facet of the fertility treatment journey from a panel of experts including Dr. Juan Alvarez as well as a fertility nurse practitioner, a financial coordinator, and holistic health expert Tami Quinn of Pulling Down the Moon. Five attendees will win a free Fertility Awareness Checkup, valued at $90. The event is free but registration is required.
