One of the most important medical conferences in North America focusing on the field of Infertility Medicine was hosted by Charleston’s own Coastal Fertility Specialists. The Donor Egg Meeting returned to Charleston, Feb. 28 – March 3.
The Donor Egg Meeting is a symposium which focuses on the technology of egg donation and third party reproduction (surrogates and gestational carriers) in the treatment of infertility, as well as advancements in the field.
A nationally recognized panel of doctors, scientists and other health professionals addressed reproductive endocrinologists, lab professionals, nurses and mental health professionals in this rapidly expanding segment of In Vitro fertilization.
With progressive medical and legal considerations surrounding the donation of a woman’s eggs and the freezing of eggs for future fertility options, Reproductive Endocrinologists John Schnorr, MD and Michael Slowey, MD, co-founders of Coastal Fertility Specialists joined the nationally recognized faculty of experts presenting cutting-edge technologies and advancements in the treatment and preservation of fertility.
With these latest advancements, come more legal and ethical considerations for providers and patients alike.
Joining the team of medical professionals were legal fertility expert Susan Crockin and other notable attorneys for a well-rounded discussion.
This three-day Continuing Medical Education accredited event allowed practitioners from across the country to enjoy the best city in the country while learning cutting edge technology.
