This post reviews research published in 2018 titled, “Fertility awareness and quality of life: assessment and impact of fertility problems and infertility.” Dr. Leanna Mantella wrote this review as a fourth-year medical student while participating in the FACTS online elective taught through Georgetown University School of Medicine.
This unique interview with a physician trained in both the Creighton Model and FEMM brings to light the impact fertility awareness-based methods (FABMs) can have on someone’s life, both personally and professionally. Nicholas Burstein, a fourth-year medical student, interviewed the physician while enrolled in Part B of the FACTS two-week online elective, ‘Fertility Awareness for Women’s Health.’ As more students continue to enroll in the FACTS electives, we feel honored to meet their educational needs during the pandemic and overjoyed to know this experience will impact their entire careers.
In 2013, FACTS began to train speakers to provide the presentations we created to share the science of fertility awareness-based methods (FABMs) with medical professionals, students, and the public. Beginning in 2020, we have featured a FACTS-trained speaker monthly to highlight the diversity and expertise of our talented pool of presenters. Our series continues with Lisa Jurski, PT, a physical therapist and Creighton Model FertilityCare practitioner. We are grateful for her support and contributions to the success of our webinar and speaker programs.
As we look ahead to 2021 and the next 10 years, we remain steadfast in our dedication to fulfill our mission. And looking back before moving forward is inspiring, as 2020 found our team ready for the extraordinary challenges we all faced. Just look at all YOU helped us achieve in the year of the pandemic.
