As part of our commitment to help build understanding and create community, Abundant Beginnings will, from time to time, host events that we think will be informative to intended parents and gestational surrogates. Please review the list below and join one of our upcoming events.
ASRM (American Society for Reproductive Medicine – 2016 Convention
Abundant Beginnings attends the ASRM Convention, an education and research meeting for Reproductive Medicine, because we feel it is vital for us to be aware of the latest technology and research in our field. We use this yearly event as an opportunity to network with our colleagues, and to bring back and share relevant information with our clients.
