I’m Dr. Andrea Vidali, an endometriosis excision surgeon and reproductive immunologist. I joined forces with Dr. Sallie Sarrel, a Pelvic Physical Therapist and infertility warrior. Fed up with the current standards for endometriosis we founded The Endometriosis Summit — an entity that has quickly become one of the largest conferences for endometriosis for both patients and practitioners. Now we want to change the narrative for everyone enduring fertility challenges.
Virtual Fertility Weekend will take place on October 24-25!
We have curated an amazing virtual conference for patients and doctors to bring together the fertility community. We want to help everyone who needs support, direction, or education about fertility, miscarriage, recurrent pregnancy loss, or IVF implantation failure. If you are struggling with infertility or if you are treating fertility, Virtual Fertility Weekend has something for you. It is geared to unite the fertility community with empowerment, support, and top-notch science-based education.
The jam-packed weekend will be filled with:
- Speakers like Professor Henriette Svarre Nielsen, who will present on Hydroxychloroquine to prevent pregnancy loss; Dr. Robert Kiltz, who will present on preparing your body for fertility through diet; Doula and Sisters in Loss Founder who will explore the grieving process of pregnancy loss and miscarriage with you and Dr. Bruce Lessey who will discuss improving outcomes for unexplained fertility.
- Outstanding Education and New Science on preventing miscarriage, IVF implantation failures, and pregnancy loss. Dr. Joanne Kwak-Kim, Dr. Jonathan Scher, and Dr. Jose Scarpelini will all be on hand in customized, interactive unique panels that will share updated and normative challenging beliefs from the Reproductive Immunology community.
- An entire hour on the Autoimmune Factors of Endometriosis and how they affect fertility. Dr. Idhaliz Florez joins us from Ponce University in Puerto Rico to discuss the mechanisms of the immune response in endometriosis and I, Dr. Andrea Vidali, will present my latest research in regarding how the immune response in those with endometriosis affects fertility.
