Put Time on Ice” Egg Freezing Happy Hour Scheduled for June 3

Offered by the Center for Advanced Reproductive Services at DISH Bar & Grill, Hartford

The Center for Advanced Reproductive Services is sponsoring a free, fun and informative girls night out to learn how the biological clock really works and how egg freezing can help put time on your side.

This free event will be held on Wednesday, June 3rd, from 5:30-7 pm at Dish Bar & Grill in Hartford. Free valet parking is included as well as food and beverages.

At the event, women will learn about the popular procedure from one of the Center’s lead physicians as well as hear the personal experience of someone who has frozen their eggs. Last year, egg freezing became a topic of conversation when Facebook and Apple announced that they would pay for female employees to have their eggs frozen.

The goal of the happy hour is to help women have a better understanding of their fertility and whether egg freezing might be appropriate for them. The Center encourages women to bring their friends and become more fertility aware in a relaxed, fun setting.
Space is limited.
It’s important that women pre-register for the event online at http://www.uconnfertility.com/news-and-events/cpars-events/
