Virtual Grand Rounds: Reproductive Impact of Cancer Treatments and Fertility Preservation Options for Cancer Patients

This Thursday, the Oncofertility Consortium is happy to host a Virtual Grand Rounds with two clinician-researchers from the Chicago area, Jennifer Hirshfeld-Cytron, MD, and Mary Ellen Pavone, MD. Drs. Hirshfeld-Cytron and Pavone are both Assistant Professors in the departments of Obstetrics and Gynecology, at the University of Illinois Medical Center and Northwestern University, respectively. To launch our efforts to link up oncology and reproductive providers, the two presenters will give an up-to-date overview of the gonadotoxic effects of different cancer treatments including surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy. Furthermore, they will provide an increased awareness about the established and emerging fertility options for young female cancer patients, before, during, and after cancer treatment.

The Virtual Grand Rounds will occur this Thursday, December 13, at 10 AM Central Time, with a talk entitled, “Reproductive Impact of Cancer Treatments and Fertility Preservation Options for Cancer Patients.” The Virtual Grand Rounds are live videoconferences with experts in the oncofertility field and allow attendees to participate through a live videochat. Virtual and in-person attendees to the rounds can also receive free continuing medical education (CME) credits by following the instructions here. Within one week of the rounds, a video recording will be posted on the Oncofertility Consortium website and CME credits also made available to viewers.
