Midwest Reproductive Center promotes infertility awareness
Estimates suggest that 1 in 8 couples will face infertility, yet many people who deal with this issue feel isolated and alone. Dr. Dan Gehlbach and the team at Midwest Reproductive Center understand the stress and emotional pain that come from dealing with infertility. To help individuals and couples struggling to conceive, RESOLVE, a national non-profit infertility association, has chosen “You are not alone” as the theme for this year’s National Infertility Awareness Week, April 19-25, 2015.
The genesis of Infertility Awareness Week
RESOLVE has worked to keep the impact of infertility in the forefront of the public conscience by providing education and tools, including National Infertility Awareness Week. Originally created in 1989, National Infertility Awareness Week was designed to supply resources for individuals seeking treatment, inform the public on infertility in the community and educate legislators about the impact of infertility on their constituencies. National Infertility Awareness Week became a federally recognized health observance by the Department of Health and Human Services in 2010.
