Come again? Confronting Infertility with Barb Collura
Today’s show about fertility and family planing is very personal to millions of people. Because, while you may want to be a biological mom or dad one day, bad things happen to good people. Joining me is perhaps one of the most unsung advocacy heroes you may never have heard of, Barb Collura, the President and CEO of RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association. One in eight couples struggle with infertility, and that’s not discount the single men and women who may not have a partner yet to build a family with. Let alone the hundreds of thousands born infertile or left infertile from cancer, chronic disease, or other reasons. Barb is THE go-to expert fighting on our behalf with the National Institutes of Health, The National Cancer Institute, The National Health Council, and — yes — The World Health Organization because they are actually an incredible governing body. So whether you have sperm, eggs, embryos, a uterus, or some or NONE of those things, this episode is the story of you. And bonus points if you can say the word IATROGENIC ten times fast, and/or perhaps find a word that rhymes with it.
