ASRM 2022 Daily Recap, Monday, October 24


Throwback to the 70s at the 2022 ASRM President’s Gala and After Party

Thank you to all our President’s Gala and After Party attendees for making the event such a success! With your help we were able to raise over $455,000 to support the Center for Policy and Leadership, a new ASRM initiative, which aims to provide information and expertise to inform the public and decision makers on matters of importance to the field of reproductive medicine while equipping leaders with skills and knowledge to influence and shape policymaking. Gala guests enjoyed groovy cocktails, a slammin’ dinner, primo ASRM annual awards presentation. After dinner, the party continued at the first President’s Gala After Party, featuring dynamite desserts and funky cocktails, and live music by K-Tel Allstars!

Thank you to our Premier Sponsor for the Gala:
Ferring Pharmaceuticals, Inc.
Thank you to Organon, LLC, presenting sponsor of the After Party.

Giving Day

Access to care is ingrained in the ASRM mission, vision, and values. At ASRM we believe that everyone has the right to safe and ethical reproductive care. As the leading reproductive health and medical society, it is our role to advocate for access to care and the fundamental right to family building. That is why on Tuesday, October 25, our community will come together to raise awareness and funding to support research that is focused on access to care. Text ASRM2022 to 41444 to make a donation and stop by the ASRM Booth to spin our Prize Wheel!
