Several hundred people are expected to turn out on Sunday, June 10 for an ATIME conference that will provide comprehensive information on a variety of topics including infertility, PCOS, recurrent pregnancy loss, genetic testing, adoption, and the latest research.
Taking place at Touro College’s Lander College for Women, the conference will begin at 9 a.m. and will feature multiple keynote addresses given by Dr. Owen Davis, Dr. Dan Goldschlag, Dr. Lawrence Grunfeld, and Dr. Brian Levine. With three sets of concurrent breakaway workshops on well over a dozen topics, the conference will give couples struggling with primary and secondary infertility and loss an opportunity to learn about the latest developments in the world of medicine that are most relevant to them and provide a chance to speak directly with the renowned medical experts who will be presenting at the conference.
“Our doctors are always extremely generous with their knowledge and their time,” said Vivienne Moskowitz, ATIME’s medical consultant and director of the Shabbos near the Hospital program. “Being able to speak directly to these prominent doctors has saved couples thousands of dollars and has helped more than a few shorten their journey to parenthood, which is the most important goal for us.”
Held every second or third year, A TIME’s conferences are just one of the many ways that the organization serves the thousands of couples who turn to them for help, explained Rabbi Mordechai Koenig, director of medical affairs and hashgachah.
“Aside from the many doctors who will be joining us, we will also be having nutritionists, alternative-medicine practitioners, acupuncturists, and physiologists addressing other aspects of infertility,” said Rabbi Koenig. “It is very comprehensive and a massive, professional event that has enabled us to help so many people in the past.”
The first organization dedicated to addressing infertility in the Jewish community, ATIME is known for its unparalleled caring and has offices throughout the United States, Europe, and Israel, servicing members from all over the world. Its multiple divisions address every aspect of women’s health from birth to menopause, and every member of the ATIME helpline is not only medically trained, but has also experienced or is currently experiencing infertility.
“The heart is there; the knowledge is there,” said Moskowitz. “We feel for them with all of our hearts and truly understand their pain.”
