“We know that the world we live in right now is uncertain, and changing rapidly, but we’re here to offer patients a chance to regain some control over the situation by using this time to stay connected virtually with a specialist. Patients have many questions about what this crisis means, how might COVID-19 affect a pregnancy, how can they interpret the changes happening in the world around them through a lens of wanting to start a family, and so on … and we’re here to help patients navigate these unchartered waters and be in a better position to move forward when the time is right,” said Eric A. Widra, M.D., SGF Chief Medical Officer.

SGF can provide physician experts for interviews on all aspects of infertility, as well as personal patient stories from women and men who have overcome or are still living with infertility. To schedule a media interview, contact Jean Dzierzak at [email protected]
