Happy New Year, and welcome to the inaugural entry of USC Fertility’s new blog. All of us have been dreaming of this day for a long time, and we’re thrilled that it’s finally here. What a way to kick off 2009!
We’ve wanted to have this forum for one reason: to better connect with you. Sure, you can comb our website, call the office, or read our newsletter (link), but we wanted you to have something more. We wanted to create a place where you could come as often as you’d like, day or night, to hear what’s on our minds, what we’ve been up to, and where we’re going.
While we’re certainly not the first fertility practice to have its own blog, we’re still a rarity. We’ve done our homework and spent many hours looking at what’s out there in the blogosphere so that we can bring something truly new to this still-growing trend.
Rather than post entries written solely by physicians and/or patients, many of the staff members in our offices will have access to the keyboard. That means you’ll hear not only from the doctors but from:
- Office Staff
Is there a new scientific advancement in the world of fertility—or a new study we’re beginning? Do we feel particularly strongly about a current event or opinion? Did we learn something in a book or article we just read? Have we had a thought-provoking debate with a colleague or patient? Chances are, you’ll read about it here first.
Above all, you’ll get an insider’s view of what we do here at USC Fertility—and how.
Do you want to know more about egg freezing options? Have you heard about our Fertility Preservation Program for cancer patients? It’s all here. Or will be, in the next few weeks and months.
We hope you look forward to getting to know us a little better as much as we look forward to peeling back the layers and letting you into our world.
