ASRM 2022 Daily Recap, Sunday, October 23


ASRM 2022 Daily Recap, Sunday, October 23


ASRM 2022 kicked off with the return of in-person Postgraduate courses!

We were excited to have over 1,070 participants in our in-person pre-congress Postgraduate Courses this year! We offered nineteen courses on topics covering IVF for Genetic Disease Prevention, Leading the Way—Modernizing REI Practice Management for the Future, Vitrification Workshop: Understanding and Troubleshooting Device Warming Issues, and more.

If you attended a Postgraduate course and are claiming credits for APA, NASW, and/or NSGC and did not sign the sign-in sheet, please stop by the ASRM Education booth and sign. If you do not sign, you will not be eligible to receive these credits.

Second Annual Social Media Summit

ASRM partnered with the Cade Foundation for the 2nd Annual Social Media Summit. The event was hosted by actress, producer, and activist, Kellee Stewart who has used her massive following to create a community on social media for people to support each other throughout their fertility journey. We heard from more than 10 ASRM social media superstars who taught us how to use social media to advocate, teach, learn, and have fun before going into in-depth break-out groups on different platforms and interests. The event was attended by more than 150 people across the reproductive medicine field. We look forward to watching our newly minted social media stars take what they learned at this year’s Summit and use it to grow their social media presence!

Social Media Scavenger Hunt

This year, YOU can become a Social Media reporter for everything #ASRM2022! No one can make it to all the sessions, but that doesn’t have to mean they miss out on great information! Drawings for assorted gift cards will take place daily, and winners will be chosen at random from those participating in the scavenger hunt on social media using the hashtag #ASRMSocialMediaScavenger.
