Center for Research in Reproduction
Outreach and Education Core
Infertility affects up to 10% of individuals/couples in the United States. Over the last few decades, treatment options have rapidly improved. Specifically, assisted reproductive technology (ART) success rates have improved with up to 50% chance of live birth with in vitro fertilization (IVF) in women under the age of 35 (Source: SART National Summary Report). Despite these improvements, some individuals/couples have multiple cycles of IVF without conceiving or ‘recurrent implantation failure' (RIF). RIF is a devastating and poorly understood diagnosis.
Our outreach program aims to provide support and education to individuals/couples who have struggled with infertility. We also provide education and support to the community through collaborative programming and joint initiatives.
