In addition to Drs. Mulhall and Rosenwaks, co-chair Dr. Glenn Schattman also of the Ronald O. Perelman and Claudia Cohen Center for Reproductive Medicine at New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center has assembled a group of experts and advocacy group representatives across specialties, including clinical psychologist Leslie Schover, PhD, of the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, as well as representatives from the fields of reproductive endocrinology, oncology, and primary care to serve on the Alliance for Fertility Preservation.
Over time, the Alliance for Fertility Preservation anticipates working with healthcare systems to ensure that these systems are equipped to provide patients with information about fertility preservation, help to promote research in the field and develop a website intended to house information about patients' fertility information options and tools to help professionals facilitate dialogue with their patients.
The International Society for Fertility Preservation, led by Dr. Sam Kim, has a mission to promote progress in fertility preservation through international cooperation and collaboration.
The Alliance for Fertility Preservation was made possible with an unrestricted educational grant from Ferring Pharmaceuticals, Inc.
