In November of 2016, the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) was recognized at the Resolve Night of Hope. Resolve assists those who have been diagnosed with infertility and provides support and resources, including advocating for patients who do not have access to treatment for infertility due to the high cost. The Night of Hope celebration brought together those in the ASRM as well as other medical professionals and leaders who want to help provide couples and individuals with the assistance they deserve for infertility treatment.
