AUSTIN, Texas, May 8, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Texas Fertility Center (TFC) is proud to announce Brittany
As the recipient, this TFC patient and a guest will be able to attend RESOLVE Advocacy Day in Washington, D.C., on May 15-16.
The grant, which OvationŪ Fertility co-sponsored, required applicants to submit their fertility story in written, video or photo collage format. To make the final selection, an independent, 12-person panel with a background in infertility reviewed all the submissions.
Brittany will attend RESOLVE Advocacy Day 2019 with a Texas Fertility Center doctor
Brittany and her guest will attend RESOLVE Advocacy Day with Kaylen Silverberg MD, the medical director of TFC. Dr. Silverberg, who regularly attends this annual event, is renowned for being a champion of accessible fertility care. He believes that it is important for fertility specialists to do their part to change the way our country views infertility.
According to Dr. Silverberg, "We received a wonderful response to our request for Advocacy Day grant submissions. Each hopeful parent has a unique story to share about infertility. We can only provide one grant, but we can share the stories of all applicants in a different way. Brittany and I will bring their stories to share with the Texas Congressional delegation."
During her trip to Washington, D.C., Brittany and her guest will attend lobbying workshops. Dr. Silverberg and other experienced advocates will lead these classes to teach attendees how to effectively lobby. After the training, Brittany and the other attendees will represent the infertility community and speak to members of Congress.
"We firmly believe that every fertility patient has a story to tell. Texas Fertility Center is honored to give another deserving patient the chance to share her story on Capitol Hill for the benefit of all infertility patients," Dr. Silverberg said.
