Infertility affects 1 in 8 couples; we need to uncover the facts and bring infertility awareness to the forefront to break barriers and remove stigmas. Fertility Centers of Illinois proudly supports National Infertility Awareness Week (NIAW) during April 21-27, 2019 with RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association.
In honor of NIAW, we are offering several events, webinars, and promotions to educate and build infertility awareness and support our community. It is our mission to help others realize their dream of having a family. We believe that sharing helpful information and advocating on behalf of those with infertility will change the national conversation around a disease that affects one in eight couples.
Are you a physician needing to refer a patient during NIAW? Follow this link to get started.
