Ethnicity and fertility (South Asian fertility)
We are delighted to announce that we have scheduled a webinar focusing on Fertility and Ethnicity (South Asian Fertility).
Statistically, more Asian women struggle with infertility, compared to their Caucasian counterparts. Did you know that women of South Asian origin often have more trouble conceiving? In 2018 Asian patients represented 14% of IVF patients in the UK.
In this webinar, we will be examining causes for links between ethnicity and infertility, from how different cultures metabolize estrogen to environmental factors such as diets.
Our esteemed panel of HSFC experts will include:
- Dr Geetha Venkat, Senior Consultant and Medical Director of Harley Street Fertility Clinic;
- Mr Raj Joshi, Senior Embryologist Harley Street Fertility Clinic;
- Mrs Rachel Dyer, Lead Nurse Harley Street Fertility Clinic;
- Ms Daisy Loganathan;
- Dr Suvir Venkataraman, General Manager Harley Street Fertility Clinic.
As well as informative discussions from our expert panel, we will also welcome questions at the end of the session.
