Seminar to Cover Latest Advancements in Infertility

Southern California Reproductive Center (SCRC), one of the country's leading fertility centers, is hosting a complimentary educational seminar on the latest advancements in infertility from 6:30–8 p.m. Sept. 27 at the Spanish Garden Inn, 915 Garden St., Santa Barbara.

Reservations are required and can be made by visiting

Several SCRC doctors will discuss fertility and family-building options as well as be available for one-on-one questions.

The presentation by Drs. Mark Surrey, Carolyn Alexander and Daniel Rychlik will cover such topics as infertility causes and factors; diagnostic fertility testing and treatments; intrauterine insemination; in vitro fertilization; and fertility preservation, such as egg-, embryo- and sperm-freezing.

The seminar also will include information on third-party reproduction, such as egg donation, surrogacy, and gestational carrier.

"We are proud to be hosting a complimentary patient education seminar in Santa Barbara,” said Dr. Surrey, co-founder of SCRC.

“These events provide a tremendous opportunity for the community to learn about fertility, ask questions and get informed. For years, this grassroots community outreach has proven valuable and successful at our founding location in Beverly Hills," he said.

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!
