Have your voice heard at Fertility Advocacy Day

Doctors, patients and advocates will be on Capitol Hill on May 15-16, 2019 for Fertility Advocacy Day to speak to members of Congress about important issues in reproductive care.

Advocacy Day is a RESOLVE event where the infertility community comes together in Washington, D.C. to talk to members of Congress about important issues, like increased access to family building options and financial relief. RESOLVE holds this annual event so that you have a chance to make your voice heard. Our Louisiana fertility clinic and physicians support the issues that RESOLVE, the National Infertility Association, will bring to our legislature this year. Learn about the issues RESOLVE will take to Congress this year.

Our team is excited to participate in RESOLVE Advocacy Day in Washington, D.C.

During the two-day event, attendees take part in an evening networking reception, morning advocate training and all-day meetings on Capitol Hill. The goal of this event is to stand together to improve fertility care and accessibility. Learn more about Advocacy Day.

Congratulations to this year’s patient advocates who will be joining us in Washington, D.C.

Hannah and Jonathan Beck will be joining Dr. Storment, the Fertility Answers team and Ovation Fertility® at Fertility Advocacy Day 2019. The couple applied and received a grant to cover their travel expenses to attend and lobby with the Louisiana delegation on Capitol Hill. The Denham Springs, LA, couple have endured years of infertility and even changed careers to find a company with infertility insurance coverage. Read their story.
