Free Manicures & Martinis Hits Chicago and Denver

The American Fertility Association's Infertility Prevention Program

NEW YORK, April 22 /PRNewswire/ -- 7.3 million!

That's how many American women have difficulty conceiving, but many of those cases could have been prevented with some simple lifestyle choices and changes. Education is the key and what better way to learn than over complimentary manicures and martinis?

"Dealing with infertility robs women of control over their own lives. Education about our bodies, and about things we can do now to preserve our fertility potential, gives that control back. The AFA's Manicures & Martinis Infertility Prevention Program has proven to be an empowering and liberating experience for women, whether they choose motherhood or not," says Corey Whelan, The AFA's Program Director and creator of the growingly popular and impactful Manicures & Martinis series.

The American Fertility Association's Manicures & Martinis Infertility Prevention Program is a national series of events dedicated to young women who are not quite ready to conceive, but might one day want to have a child. Fertility experts will lead conversations about how to prevent infertility whenever possible, the reality of the "biological clock," the harmful effects of STD's and environmental toxins, and the differences between gynecologists and reproductive endocrinologists. Attendees will enjoy complimentary manicures and martinis, or a "Fertiltini" -- an all-organic, alcohol-free cocktail.

The AFA's Executive Director, Ken Mosesian, says, "Through post-event surveys, young women are telling us how much they have learned about the basics of reproduction, especially about their biological clocks, about the importance of preventing STD's, and about birth control. One participant said, 'Finally, some answers.'"

The list of cities in which Manicures & Martinis will be held continues to grow, most recently scheduling events in The Mile High and Windy Cities.
