Women’s Health Virtual Study Day

The Fertility Hub are delighted to be working with the Fertility Team at West Herts Hospital NHS Trust as media partner for this event. This online study day takes place on Saturday 26 September 2020. The study day is aimed at doctors, nurses, embryologists, midwives, trainees, GP’s and all other healthcare professionals working in women’s healthcare.

The event is celebrating its fifth consecutive year to promote learning and awareness about fertility and women’s health. Due the COVID19 pandemic and restrictions on large gatherings, this year’s event will be held online for your convenience and safety.

Previous events have covered topics that were of interest to the majority of healthcare professional attendees. From last year’s feedback forms, this year’s agenda has been compiled with the topics requested by professionals in assisted reproduction.
