I received this comunication from the American Society for Reproductive Medicine

MEETING ANNOUNCEMENT  —The Adequacy of Assisted Reproductive Technology Oversight

Monday, December 14, 2009

8:30 am – 3:00 pm
Mandarin Oriental Hotel
Washington, DC
Given the rather high profile incidents in infertility therapies that came to light in 2009, the leaders in reproductive medicine are asking questions about how best to prevent such incidents from occurring again.  While little factual information is available on the specific incidents, we can and should assess where general oversight of the field is, and seek ways to improve it, if necessary

Accordingly the American Society for Reproductive Medicine is convening a meeting in Washington, DC to gather input on this important topic. Information will be exchanged between government agencies, patients, physicians, leading academic experts, and others.

 

Featured speakers will include:

Maurizio Macaluso, MD, DrPH, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
James Goldfarb, MD, President, Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology
Jake Mayer, PhD,  the Jones Institute, Eastern Virginia Medical School
Stuart S. Howards, MD, American Board of Urology

Barbara Collura, RESOLVE, The National Infertility Association
Susannah Baruch, JD, Generations Ahead
Liza Mundy, author
Judith Daar, JD, Whittier Law School
