New York City, April 25, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Progyny, the leading fertility benefits management company, and RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association announced today they will ring the Nasdaq Stock Market Closing Bell in recognition of National Infertility Awareness Week.
National Infertility Awareness Week brings attention to the far-reaching impact of infertility and the struggle that millions of people endure to build their family. Progyny and RESOLVE share a common goal of removing the stigmas and barriers that stand in the way of building families.
To recognize the millions who struggle with infertility and to honor the leading employers who are taking action to support their employees, David Schlanger, CEO of Progyny, and Barbara Collura, President and CEO of RESOLVE, will participate in the Closing Bell Ceremony from 3:45pm to 4:00pm ET.
“Progyny is proud to work with many of the nation’s leading employers to bring a comprehensive fertility benefit to their employees,” said Schlanger. “Our smarter approach empowers patients and their doctors to determine the best course of treatment for each individual and eliminates unnecessary barriers to building a family. Our solution provides the financial, clinical and emotional support needed to ensure a
healthy, timely and supported fertility journey.”
“National Infertility Awareness Week unites millions of Americans who want to remove the stigmas and barriers that stand in the way of building families,” said Collura. “Anyone can be challenged to have a family. No matter what race, sexuality or economic status you are, infertility doesn’t discriminate. Financial coverage for infertility shouldn’t discriminate either. We are calling on every employer and legislator to acknowledge infertility for the disease that it is and to take action. Together we can make the dreams of family come true.”
