FREE WORKSHOP FOR COUPLES HAVING DIFFICULTY BECOMING PREGNANT

Winthrop-University Hospital will offer a free workshop, “When Hope is Not Enough,” for women and their husbands/significant others who are frustrated in their efforts to have a baby. The program will be held on Monday, February 9, 2009 at 6:30 PM at Winthrop’s Community Outreach Center, located at 101 Mineola Boulevard in Mineola.

Couples can learn how they can optimize their chances of conceiving a child from Linda Sung, MD, a specialist in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility. Dr. Sung will discuss how infertility is defined, what couples can do about it, and the latest information on treatment options. “There are many treatments available for fertility, but it’s important to individualize the treatment according to the needs of couple,” she said. A question and answer period will be included in the lecture.

Parking and the entrance are in the rear of the building.

Admission is free, but seating is limited; a lite dinner will be served. Reservations are required. To reserve your seat, please call 1-866-WINTHROP.

Winthrop is a member of Spirt of Women®, a coalition of American hospitals and healthcare providers that ascribe to high standards of excellence in women’s health, education and community outreach.
