Apply for a grant to join Fertility Answers at Advocacy Day in Washington D.C.
RESOLVE Advocacy Day 2019 will take place on May 15-16. This event provides an opportunity for the infertility community to speak to members of Congress about important issues in reproductive care. This day allows us to lobby our elected officials at the national level for increased infertility awareness and insurance coverage.
Our Louisiana fertility doctors provide exceptional fertility care that is as accessible as possible for hopeful parents. The team at Fertility Answers knows it can be difficult for many women and men to afford fertility testing and treatment.
Many Fertility Answers patients ask how they can help make fertility benefits a reality. Attending Advocacy Day is the perfect way to share personal stories of infertility struggles to encourage our elected officials to stand behind legislation to affect changes in benefits.
Share your fertility story for a chance to attend Advocacy Day
Fertility Answers and Ovation Fertility® are co-sponsoring a grant for patients who would like to attend Advocacy Day 2019. This grant is designed to cover airfare and hotel expenses for one Fertility Answers patient and a guest to attend and lobby with the Louisiana delegation on Capitol Hill.
Experience Washington and Advocacy Day with seasoned professionals
One Fertility Answers patient and a guest will speak with the Louisiana House and Senate representatives as a part of the Louisiana team. To help support the patient and their guest, RESOLVE will provide training prior to our meetings. Experienced fertility advocates will head up our lobbying efforts while on the Hill.
Most hopeful parents don’t have the resources to attend Advocacy Day on their own, so Fertility Answers and Ovation Fertility are working together to help one current or past Fertility Answers patient attend this special event.
