Rockville, MD (PRWEB) October 25, 2016 -- RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association announced last week that the organization’s first Physicians Council will include four physicians from Shady Grove Fertility. Jason G. Bromer, M.D., Isaac E. Sasson, M.D., Ph.D., Gilbert L. Mottla, M.D., and the practice’s Medical Director, Eric A. Widra, M.D., join other esteemed colleagues from around the nation to further support RESOLVE’s mission to improve the lives of those struggling to build their family.
In a release RESOLVE’s President/CEO, Barb Collura, explained these physicians’ selection on the inaugural council, saying “These physicians have not only made a significant investment in ensuring RESOLVE has the resources to fulfill our mission, but they offer their advice, counsel, and leadership, which grows our ability to serve more people in need.”
From patient support and education, to research and development, and advocacy on the federal and state level, Shady Grove Fertility proudly partners with RESOLVE to help overcome infertility. Shady Grove Fertility physicians represent the values and dedication that have guided the practice’s success for over a quarter century.
Among the reasons Dr. Widra, who sees patients in SGF’s K Street, Washington, D.C. location, pledges his support for RESOLVE, “RESOLVE is an important ally for patients and physicians in helping couples overcome infertility. Through their efforts—providing patients with a myriad of support resources, improving access to needed medical treatment by advocating for greater insurance coverage, or normalizing the diagnosis—I see the benefits of their tireless efforts every day.”
Dr. Bromer, who sees patients in SGF’s Frederick, MD, and Hagerstown, MD locations adds, “Infertility is a serious public health issue that affects one in eight couples, and it is devastating for anyone trying to grow their family. RESOLVE has been absolutely vital in providing information, community support, financial resources, and advocacy to these vulnerable patients. I am very excited to partner with RESOLVE in its mission and look forward to more opportunities to pursue this vital work.”
Serving on the inaugural Physicians Council, not only will these four Shady Grove Fertility physicians continue their efforts helping to build families while providing education and support through RESOLVE but all of SGF’s 35 physicians remain committed to RESOLVE’s mission.
“Patients entrust us with their care at such a vulnerable time in their lives and it's our honor to get to know our patients on a personal level. The RESOLVE community promotes patient education and a sense of belonging. Going through infertility can often feel isolating and alone, but through RESOLVE we all feel connected to one another. RESOLVE helps our patients to feel they are not alone, to know their options, and feel empowered in their decisions,” remarks Dr. Sasson, who sees patients in SGF’s Chesterbrook, PA, location.
Dr. Mottla, who sees patients in SGF’s Annapolis, MD office adds, “RESOLVE is an organization of talented individuals who care deeply about their mission of patient support and advocacy. I support RESOLVE for many reasons but in particular for their continued success at advocacy at both the state and federal levels resulting in significant and improved patient access to care.”
