Description

Barren Conceptions: A Scholarly Panel Pondering the Intersections of Religion, Medicine, and Infertility

Temple University
Anderson Hall
Women's Studies Hall, 8th Floor
114 West Berks Street
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 19122

What role ought religion and medicine -- the clergy and doctors in particular – play in helping women make informed decisions about having babies?

How are Jews, Catholics and Protestants thinking about fertility and the use of biotechnologies like IVF, to make babies?

How are future OB-GYNs being trained in medical schools today to become more knowledgeable about infertility and to ask women difficult questions about family planning?

Please join us for this informal reflection of these and other critical questions. This event is free and open to the public. It is the closing event for the month-long symposium, Cradling Creativity: The ART of Infertility in Philadelphia.
