Reproductive Medicine Associates of Connecticut's (RMACT), Dr. Spencer Richlin and Beth Sweeney (and her family) share how they worked together to create the healthiest situation possible for Beth's family.
Advocacy at it's best.
The headline could read, "Genetic Testing Prevents Families Passing on Serious Diseases".
Or it could read, "Scientific and Medical Technology Gives Babies a Healthier Start in Life".
It could also state, "PGD Leads the Way in Healthy Families".
There are so many ways to announce this very good news that even shouting it from the rooftops doesn't seem like a bad idea.
It could certainly read, "Infertility Patient and Fertility Doctor Work Together to Create a Healthy and Happy Family".
The advocacy came in when they took it a step further and shared the story, in the hopes that it would help other men and women out there.
