EATONTOWN,NJ, April 23, 2017 – REPRODUCTIVE SCIENCE CENTER OF NJ and RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association will recognize National Infertility Awareness Week® (NIAW), April 23 through April 29. NIAW is a chance
for millions of women and men struggling to build a family, healthcare professionals and mental health professionals to promote greater awareness about infertility.
RESOLVE, established in 1974, is dedicated to ensuring that all people challenged in their family building journey reach resolution through being empowered by knowledge, supported by community, united by advocacy, and inspired to act.

About National Infertility Awareness Week® (NIAW): Founded by RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association, NIAW is a movement that raises awareness about the disease of infertility and encourages the public to take charge of their reproductive health. Each year the infertility community comes together for one week to focus on ensuring that people trying to conceive know the guidelines for seeing a specialist when they are trying to conceive; enhancing public understanding that infertility is a disease that needs and deserves attention; and educating legislators about the disease of infertility and how it impacts people in their state. In 2010 NIAW became a federally recognized health observance by the Department of Health and Human Services. For more information, visit www.infertilityawareness.org.
