IVFConnections is pleased to announce that they will be one of Resolve's Night of Hope sponsors for 2011. The Night of Hope is held once a year to celebrate and highlight the people and organizations who work to improve the lives of people with infertility. This year's event will be guest-hosted by The View's Sherri Shepherd, an actress, comedienne and infertility advocate. The Barbara Eck Founders Award Honoree is Dr. Alan DeCherney, an in vitro fertilization (IVF) pioneer in the U.S., mentor and teacher of over 100 reproductive endocrinologists and Editor-in-Chief of Fertility and Sterility, the journal of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) from 1997 to 2011.
"This event is a terrific way to celebrate all of the individuals who make such a huge difference in the lives of everyone in the infertility community," said Erika Tabke, President and Editor-in-Chief of IVFConnections. "I have witnessed so many amazing moments of support and charity within the infertility community," Tabke continued. "IVFConnections is delighted to help sponsor Resolve's Night of Hope and thank the advocates who work tirelessly to make life better for those affected by infertility-related issues."
IVFConnections teamed up with Resolve as an official media partner in April of this year; the online community worked to promote National Infertility Awareness Week, and several members flew to Washington D.C. to participate in Resolve's Advocacy Day in May.
