2011 AAFCP Annual Meeting

This summer, I will be presenting at the 2011 American Academy of FertilityCare Professionals Annual Meeting, which will be held in Duluth, Minnesota from July 20th through the 23rd. I will be speaking on Thursday morning, the 21st of July, on The Fetal Safety of Progesterone in Pregnancy. During my talk, I will be presenting the largest database in the world on the use of progesterone in pregnancy. I will detail fetal anomalies and will then compare the use of progesterone support with non-use. And, I will review the medical literature available on this topic.

I will also be available for two Q&A break-out sessions. The first one on Friday will be for medical professionals and will explore issues about NaProTechnology. The second session on Saturday will be for all attendees and will consider the application of the Creighton Model System and NaProTechnology and will explore practical uses of these in case-related areas.

I hope you can incorporate this meeting in your summer plans. For more information and to register, visit http://www.aafcp.org and click on “Annual Meeting” under the Events tab.

This year, the Pope Paul VI Institute for the Study of Human Reproduction–the home of FertilityCareTM and NaProTechnology–celebrates its 25th anniversary! We have festivities planned for this occasion in September. The Labor Day Weekend Celebration of Love & Lfe will be held here in Omaha, Nebraska, where the Institute was founded. There will be two day-long conferences preceeding the celebration.

On Thursday, September 2nd, we will hold the first-ever conference on the Pastoral Directives of Humanae Vitae. On Friday, September 3rd, medical professionals and other interested lay people can attend an international conference on the new women’s health science of NaProTechnology.

The culmination of the weekend will be Saturday’s Family Fun Day. The day of free fun to celebrate the 25th anniversary will have activities for the whole family including inflatables, pony rides, a fire truck and smoke trailer, a police car, face painting, clowns, music, unicyclists, arcade games, testimonials, book signings, and much more!
