The AFA's Infertility Prevention Series Premieres in NYC
Date:1/29/2009

Leading-Edge Program Attracts a Standing-Room-Only Crowd

NEW YORK, Jan. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- The American Fertility Association launched the much anticipated Manicures & Martinis infertility prevention program Tuesday night at Dashing Diva Nail Salon in Gramercy Park, Manhattan. The event exceeded all expectations, drawing a standing-room-only crowd of young women from around the city and beyond. Manicures & Martinis targets young women who are not quite ready to conceive, but might one day want to have a child.

The program is being taken to places where women commonly hang out, such as nail salons, health clubs, and boutiques. Based on the turnout Tuesday - it seems to be working.

Ken Mosesian, Executive Director of The AFA, says, "We were hoping to have 20 women register for the event. We registered 25, had an additional 25 show up, and had a waiting list of 34. I was taken by the thoughtfulness of the questions; for example, women asking about the effects of long-term birth control on fertility, STD prevention, and what part the male plays in infertility. This was a clear demonstration of just how much this information is lacking and desired."

"The event was a success, the Fertilitini(T
