Southern California Reproductive Center Santa Barbara to Lead ‘Fertility 101’ Educational Seminar

Southern California Reproductive Center Santa Barbara will host a free educational seminar, “Fertility 101,” in the Riviera Room at Wine Cask Restaurant, located at 813 Anacapa Street, from 6:30-8:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 27, 2016.

Occurring in honor of National Infertility Awareness Week, the seminar will feature experts Dr. Mark Surrey, Dr. Daniel Rychlik and Dr. Carolyn Alexander.

Topics will include intrauterine insemination; in vitro fertilization; fertility preservation, including egg and sperm freezing; and third party production, including egg donation, surrogacy and gestational carriers.

Guests will receive a complimentary consultation voucher, good for a first time consultation with a physician and an initial ultrasound, a $500 value.

Appetizers will also be served at the event.

National Infertility Awareness Week is a project of RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association. The goal of the week is to raise awareness about infertility, encourage grassroots advocacy and help couples with infertility cope with their disease.

The week provides a time for those with infertility to “come out” to their friends and families, if they wish. It encourages the fertility challenged to not feel ashamed.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
