RESOLVE Family Building Summit
At Clinic Sofia, we are grateful to work with many patients on their journey to building a family. For many, however, the process does not come easily and can leave them feeling frustrated and helpless. Please know you are not alone!
If you experiencing infertility or if you are interested in learning more about adoption, we hope you will join Clinic Sofia for the 34th Annual Infertility, Adoption and Family Building Summit taking place Nov. 10 at Normandale Community College in Bloomington.
The daylong event, coordinated by RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association, will address the medical and emotional issues associated with infertility and adoption. It is the largest of its kind in the Midwest. Attendees will learn about new treatments, talk directly to doctors and specialists, explore adoption and network with others who are on the path to parenthood.
“This event covers all aspects of infertility, from a basic introduction where we discuss possible causes all the way to the myriad of treatments available today,” said Dr. David Clay, who will speak on the summit’s “Infertility 101.” “Whether you have been trying to conceive for more than six months or you’ve been through IVF and are looking at other options, this summit aims to help individuals and couples no matter what stage they are at.”
This year’s event will include more than 20 workshop sessions led by medical professionals, mental health professionals and adoption experts. Participants choose which sessions they want to attend so they can customize their learning experience to meet their needs. In addition, each registrant receives tickets for a variety of giveaways, including $10,000 in fertility treatments (must be present to win).
“Clinic Sofia is proud to be part of the Family Building Summit, and we encourage our patients who are interested in learning more about fertility and adoption to join us,” said Dr. Clay, who also spoke at the event last year and attended several of the sessions. “Beyond the helpful sessions, the summit provides a sense of community and support for those at a similar life stage.”
If you register before Oct. 28, the cost is $45 with additional guests costing $25. Starting Oct. 29, registration increases to $75 per main registrant with additional guests $35 each. Please note that military/veterans attend free. Scholarships are also available to ensure everyone who want to attend can do so.
