Upcoming Fertility Planit Conference


The 2nd Annual Fertility Planit Conference is right around the corner! 

Fertility Planit is an online resource for family planning.  In addition to offering support, relevant information and educational opportunities, they also put on an annual conference that brings speakers from all over the nation.  This year the conference is in NYC on September 15th from 8-6.

I was disappointed that I was unable to attend last year and was checking out the line up for their upcoming conference.  I pulled up the website and found that for those that cannot attend this year we can still take part!  The conference will be streamed live on:

fora.tv/conference/fertility_planit_2013_nyc/livestream.

Not only can you watch the speakers, but you can participate in the question and answer sessions with the hashtag: #FP13NY.

 

Here is the line-up for the day if you are interested in checking any of it out!
