Jennifer Hirshfeld, MD
Hi, my name is Dr. Jennifer Hirshfeld and I am an ob/gyne currently undergoing subspeciality training in reproductive endocrinology and infertility. As part of this program, I have had the opportunity to work in Dr. Woodruff’s lab and learn about the emerging scientific discoveries regarding ovarian biology. Oncofertility focuses on fertility preservation for cancer patients as treatments as well as the disease can affect one’s future fertility. Yet, cancer is not unique in this way; other disease processes have treatments that also effect one’s future fertility. I plan to focus this blog on coverage of some of those diseases with suggested articles and websites to learn more about this important topic. It is very exciting to be apart of the oncofertility focused “blog-society”! I look forward to your comments and suggestions.
