The American Fertility Association Announces Plan to Help Young Women Preserve Fertility
Date:10/30/2008

NEW YORK, Oct. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- The American Fertility Association introduces Manicures and Martinis, a new and innovative educational program which brings young women together in a casual setting over manicures and martinis while learning the "dos and don'ts" of preserving fertility. It's free, relaxing, fun, and educational. The series will roll through 20 U.S. cities and be hosted by leading professionals in the reproductive medical field, including Jamie Grifo, MD, Ph.D., of NYU School of Medicine.

"As a mom, I feel very protective of young women today. Through The AFA, I have the ability to educate them about making choices -- from going green to the possibility of freezing their eggs -- in an appealing format. I know I would have been happy to attend a Manicures and Martinis at 25, but you couldn't have dragged me to an infertility seminar," says Whelan.

Manicures and Martinis will be held at some of the nation's finest and trendiest nail salons and restaurants with the fi
