National Infertility Awareness Week raises awareness about the disease of infertility and aims to “encourage the public to understand their reproductive health.”
This year, National Infertility Awareness Week is April 24-30. Let’s take a closer look at this movement as well as ways that San Antonio fertility doctor Erika Munch, MD, can help patients who are struggling with infertility.
RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association started the movement in 1989, and the week became a federally recognized health observance in 2010.
Since 1989, RESOLVE has worked with “the professional family building community, corporate partners and the media” during National Infertility Awareness Week.
Every year, the goal of the week is to educate the public and legislators about the impact and treatment of infertility.
To promote the goal of education, each National Infertility Awareness Week has a theme, and this year’s theme is #StartAsking.
RESOLVE wants to encourage you to use social networks to #StartAsking tough questions about infertility. The website for National Infertility Awareness Week provides a wide variety of questions that you can #StartAsking about infertility.
#StartAsking employers for insurance coverage for infertility treatment
