OHSU Fertility Consultants discuss egg donation as an option for patients who’ve been unsuccessful using other infertility therapies

WHAT:    OHSU Fertility Consultants will host a free seminar on how to achieve the goal of becoming parents through egg donation.

Amato and other physicians, nurses, counselors and staff who specialize in reproductive medicine will address indication for egg donation, how egg donors are screened, the matching process, psychological issues, success rates, and costs.

WHEN:    Tuesday, May 25, 2010, from 6 to 8 p.m.

WHERE:    OHSU Center for Health & Healing, 3303 S.W. Bond Ave., Portland, OR
