Ferring Announces $5 Million Gift to ASRM

At this morning’s Opening Ceremony, The American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) and Ferring Pharmaceuticals, Inc., announced a historic $5 million gift from Ferring to ASRM. This endowment, the largest in ASRM’s nearly 80-year history, will establish the “Ferring Endowment for the Education of Healthcare Professionals in Training,” ensuring ASRM’s continued legacy as the leading educator for professionals in the field.

ASRM will utilize this endowment to create, establish, and maintain innovative educational programs for healthcare professionals who are actively enrolled in training for the field of reproductive endocrinology and infertility.

Against the backdrop of New Orleans’ vibrant energy, attendees clinked glasses, snacked on appetizers, and engaged with leaders from ASRM’s member groups and the Fertility and Sterility team. This event was a hub of connection, where new relationships sparked and existing networks expanded. The best part? It was free and open to all attendees, providing a golden opportunity to deepen engagement within ASRM. Our heartfelt appreciation goes to Ferring Pharmaceuticals, Inc., for making this one-of-a-kind gathering possible, leaving an indelible mark on our ASRM experience.
