‘Tis the Season for Giving Thanks!
At FACTS, we would like to close out 2020 by giving thanks to all those who have given their gifts so selflessly to us throughout the year.
A Heartfelt Thank You to…
• The women and couples who have so graciously shared their stories. YOU are the reason FACTS exists!
• The medical professionals who continue to conduct and publish research and practice in the field of fertility awareness. You are changing the landscape in women’s health.
• Our generous FACTS donors and members, whose gracious contributions make our work possible.
• Our extraordinary staff and volunteers, whose commitment and dedication to our mission is ever-present!
And lastly, we want to especially thank our amazing group of FACTS preceptors who, through our elective program, give so generously of their time, talents, and medical expertise to our students and residents. Their efforts are essential in helping FACTS spread the science behind fertility awareness to medical and health professional students across the country.
