It's certainly an ever-changing science as technology permits us to be more precise with treatments in order to give patients the best probable outcome.
As mentioned in the invitation to me, "Although this meeting is meant for healthcare professionals, a well informed patient can benefit from the congress as well." I consider myself fairly well informed on the topic of infertility and its treatment, and as an advocate, I would certainly love to attend the congress.
Alas, with Hubby in school, our tight budget doesn't permit my indulging in this right now. I'm sure there'll be other opportunities in the future though. That said, I ought to look into whether there'll be an opportunity to obtain notes from the discussions. Additionally, although I can't attend, maybe you or someone you know would like to. If so, I can certainly put you in touch with the Associate Project Manager who sent me the invitation. Do let me know.
Wishing all my fellow IF bloggers a wonderful (spring!) week!
