In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) was the Subject of This Year’s Winning Entry for the Prestigious Library of Congress “Discovery or Exploration in History Award”
Date:7/29/2014

Boston, MA (PRWEB) July 29, 2014

The prestigious "Discovery or Exploration in History Award" from the Library of Congress was recently awarded to Juliana Hillis and Kaylie O’Connell, students at Stoneham High School in Stoneham, MA, for their project, “From an Egg, Everything: America’s First IVF Baby".

“With infertility affecting up to 15% of couples, it was great to participate in Juliana and Kaylie’s project highlighting the advances that have been made in fertility treatment over the past 35 years since the birth of the first IVF baby. It is very fitting that they won the "Discovery or Exploration in History Award" as they did an excellent job raising awareness of an important discovery that has now resulted in the birth of more than 5 million children worldwide,” commented Dr. Samuel Pauli, Reproductive Endocrinologist and project resource at Reproductive Science Center of New England in Lexington, MA.

After months of intensive research, including interviews with Elizabeth Carr, the first baby born utilizing IVF, Dr. Howard Jones, the founder of the clinic where Ms. Carr was conceived, Amy Altman, a reproductive attorney, and seve
