    DuoFertility | National Infertility Awareness Week

    in Health

    On the inaugural broadcast of ‘this week in fertility’ on Tuesday, April 17th, 2012 at 1PM Pacific/4PM Eastern we are launching a ‘countdown series’ of timely interviews in anticipation of the National Infertility Awareness Week (NIAW) organized by Resolve, April 22 – 28, 2012.
    The show is produced by FertilityOptions.org and is principally moderated by women’s health activist, ‘e-patient’, self-ascribed ‘insultant’, & social media diva extraordinaire Kim Whittemore. In the narrative matters department, on the first broadcast we’ll hear all about Kim’s standing in this conversation given her personal journey into infertility at a very early age.
    Then we’ll meet the Shamus Husheer, Ph.D., Founder, CEO and President of a UK based unique biometric fertility monitoring system known as DuoFertility.  For context via a BBC documentary piece in the ‘Britain’s Next New Thing’ series, click here.
    If you have a moment, you may want to answer a few questions via the ‘suitability tool’ to see if you are a candidate for DuoFertility’s program. Non-invasive, and a fraction of the cost of IVF procedures with comparable if not superior results this is a technology worth a look.
    We’ll learn more from Dr. Husheer & walk through an overview of NIAW activities. Do consider joining us on this maiden voyage.
