The Wild Dunes Resort in Isle of Palms, South Carolina, is holding a symposium from April 28 to May 1 in order to teach participants about the technology of oocyte donation and third party reproduction in relation to assisted reproductive technology. Called the Donor Egg Meeting, this symposium allows endocrinologists, fellows, laboratory professionals, nurses, and more to come together and understand this vital and growing aspect of in-vitro fertilization!
The Topics Covered at Donor Egg Meeting
The Donor Egg Meeting symposium will host nationally recognized speakers to explain clinical, laboratory, and psychological techniques that generate the most success with third party reproduction. The staff will also debate current and future alternatives to third party reproduction, demonstrate how newly discovered knowledge can be applied into practice, and discuss the in-depth legal implications of third party reproduction.
Two mini symposiums will be held also: Donor Eggs 101 and Reproductive Genetics. The Donor Eggs 101 will explain the basic concepts of egg donation, from the donor screening process and embryology to the embryo transfer. This year’s newest mini-symposium, Reproductive Genetics: Carrier Screening to PGS, It’s Changing Fast, will summarize genetics and then host a comprehensive discussion regarding the complications and nuances involved in genetic screening and carrier screening.
What Does Enrollment Fee Cover?
Any physicians, laboratory directors, PhDs, attorneys, mental health professionals, and industry representatives and employees must pay an $800 enrollment fee for the Donor Egg Meeting. Fertility nurses, technicians, fellows, and residents have a discounted rate of $650, and spouses or guests can pay $75 to attend the Friday night reception.
With this enrollment fee, all attendees receive scientific sessions, digital course syllabus, a Friday evening reception, breakfasts, lunch, and a certificate of completion. The symposium maintains an interactive format, so only 200 people can participate on a first come, first serve basis.
Overall, the Egg Donor meeting is a fantastic way for industry professionals to learn more about the most up-to-date and groundbreaking science regarding the technology of oocyte donations and third party reproduction.
