Dr. Marcia Inhorn, professor and the chair of the Council on Middle Eastern Studies at Yale University
Infertility doesn’t discriminate. It affects people of all backgrounds. Because different groups of people view and deal with infertility in unique ways, the Fertility Docs have decided to do a Culture and Fertility Series to explore these differences. This episode focuses on infertility among members of the Muslim community. Join Dr. Carrie Bedient from The Fertility Center of Las Vegas, Dr. Abby Eblen from Nashville Fertility Center and Dr. Susan Hudson from Texas Fertility Center as they discuss this topic with Dr. Marcia Inhorn, a professor and the chair of the Council on Middle Eastern Studies at Yale University.
