CNY Fertility has been a proud supporter of The American Fertility Association’s Illuminations yearly event for quite some time and this year is no different. If you attend you’ll see our ad in the Tribute Journal handed out to all attendees. Read more about The AFA here.
Illuminations NYC will take place this year on Monday, November 4, 2013, at the YAle Club of New York 6:00-8:00pm. The AFA will be honoring Nia Vardalos with The Carolyn Berger – Adoption Advocacy Award – and Alan S. Penzias, M.D. with The Joyce M. Vargyas – M.D. Visionary Award.
Illuminations are the National events that take place in Los Angeles and New York City, celebrating the work of individuals and organizations who have made a positive difference in the fields of fertility, reproductive health, and family building. These events are attended by physicians and other healthcare professionals, including nurses, therapists, complementary medicine practitioners, parents and hopeful parents.
Illuminations events benefit the work of The American Fertility Association (The AFA), and have raised over $1.5 million to date. the money raised supports leading-edge education outreach events across the nation. The AFA’s four strategic goals include: Trying to conceive / Trying to adopt, Infertility prevention / Fertility preservation, Men’s reproductive health, and LGbT family building.
