Know Before You Go: ASRM 2022 Scientific Congress & Expo

Dear ASRM 2022 Attendee:

We’re excited to see you at the ASRM 2022 Scientific Congress and Expo in Anaheim! We’ll see you soon, but in the meantime, here’s some info you will want to know before you go.

PAPERLESS MEETING

ASRM 2022 is a paperless meeting. You can find comprehensive program information in the Congress mobile app. Complimentary wi-fi will be available in the convention center common areas and the meeting rooms. The final program is no longer printed and there will be no onsite printing stations, so we recommend that you download the final program and print out any sections you need prior to arrival. At the Congress, you will receive a printed copy of our daily schedule in your delegate packet at Registration. Printed poster abstract schedules will also be available on site.

Fertility and Sterility Journal Club Global – LIVE at ASRM 2022

“Is PGT-P cutting edge or should we cut it out?”

Please join us live in Anaheim or register here to watch online. PGT for polygenic risk scoring (PGT-P) is a novel screening strategy of embryos for polygenic conditions and traits. With several companies now offering PGT-P, the clinical utility and ethics of polygenic risk scoring are being hotly debated. Join us live from the 2022 ASRM Scientific Congress & Expo as we debate the role of PGT-P in modern REI practice. We will be joined by a team of clinical and scientific experts to unpack both sides of the argument and hopefully arrive at a consensus.

Live QBoost

Win prizes by playing Live QBoost Monday through Wednesday from 10 to 10:30 am in the Networking Lounge (located in the Expo Hall), and during the “All In” Reception at 4:30 pm on the plaza. Look for pop-up locations and ASRM celebrity hosts and at other locations throughout the Congress!
