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". This project was chosen from among 3,000 final entries for the National History Day program during a week-long final competition judged by more than 300 historians and educators in Washington, D.C.

The growing popularity of the assisted reproductive technology (ART) known as in vitro fertilization or IVF, which assists with fertility for those who are unable to conceive and carry a baby to term on their own, provided a subject rich in examples supporting the theme of this year’s competition “rights and responsibilities in history.” The extensive research the students conducted uncovered insights and interpretations into many different legal, social and ethical issues associated with this innovative and relatively new reproductive medicine practice.

“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
