Free Fertility and Breast Cancer Forum on July 10
When learning that they have breast cancer, many women fear that the treatment they will be receiving may impair their fertility. There are, however, precautions that can be taken to provide a good outcome. On Monday, July 10, from 6 to 8 pm Dr. Avner Hershlag, one of the New York area’s leading fertility experts, will discuss treatments that include fertility preservation, egg donation, surrogacy, egg freezing and preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) at a free forum presented by the Adelphi NY Statewide Breast Cancer Program.
Dr. Avner Hershlag, MD, FACOG, is Chief of the Fertility Center at Northwell Health, providing fertility services to the Greater New York region, where he has cared for patients for more than 20 years. Dr. Hershlag serves as an attending physician in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at North Shore University Hospital. He holds a faculty appointment as Professor of Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Reproductive Medicine at the Hofstra Northwell School of Medicine.
This meeting will be held at Alumni House, 154 Cambridge Avenue, at the Adelphi Campus in Garden City.
