The FACTS Advisory Council consists of a talented and diverse group of individuals whose guidance and support are crucial to the success of our organization. This year, we have featured one of our Council members each month to highlight their unique and generous contributions to our mission. Our series continues this week with Matthew Larkin, whose strategic thinking and business experience remain a tremendous asset to FACTS.
September is Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) Awareness Month, and we join the many organizations raising awareness and providing education about this common condition. PCOS affects 10-15% of women and is the leading cause of female infertility. It is also associated with medical conditions like type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and obesity, among others. Learn here how PCOS can affect infertility.
Our Advisory Council series continues this week as we introduce Dr. Peter Danis, a board-certified family physician who serves on the faculty at Mercy Family Medicine Residency and as an adjunct professor at St Louis University School of Medicine. Dr. Danis has published in a variety of journals and is a regular speaker on the local and national level on topics addressing women’s health, fertility awareness, and the medical applications of NaPro Technology.

Our Advisory Council series continues this week as we introduce Dr. Pamela Vnenchak, a board-certified family physician and the new program director of the Penn Medicine/Lancaster General Health Family Medicine Residency Program. Like many medical professionals who first learn about FABMs, she was cautiously curious initially, allowing the science and solid data to spur her curiosity into further research. Learn more about Dr. Vnenchak here!
Our Advisory Council series continues as we introduce Dr. John Breheny, PhD, STL, a distinguished veteran in the fields of healthcare, ethics, and education. A FACTS Council Member since 2012, we are so grateful for the support and myriad contributions he has given our organization over the years. Learn more from Dr. Breheny here!
Our Advisory Council series continues as we introduce Dr. Abby Crowley, a lifelong educator who recently completed service in the U.S. Peace Corps training college faculty in the Philippines. A strong proponent of fertility awareness education, her enthusiasm, encouragement, and skills in developing educational materials for professionals have been valuable assets supporting the mission of FACTS.
