Dr. Kaye made her voice heard on behalf of infertility patients at Advocacy Day 2022
Each Las Vegas fertility doctor at our practice supports infertility patients every day. This typically involves diagnosing and treating men and women so that they can have healthy babies. This support can also take the form of advocating for the rights of hopeful parents. A great example of this is Dr. Kaye participating in Advocacy Day 2022.
What do you need to know about Dr. Kaye taking part in Advocacy Day 2022?
RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association and the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) both support Advocacy Day. It is an event that allows members of the infertility community to make their voices heard in front of Congress. This involves discussing important topics ranging from access to family-building options to financial relief.
The event took place virtually this year, so Dr. Kaye and other members of the Nevada delegation spoke to members of Congress via Zoom and over the phone. During Advocacy Day 2022, the group spoke with Nevada Senators (Jacky Rosen and Catherine Cortez Masto) and Nevada House Representatives (Dina Titus, Steven Horsford, Susie Lee and Mark Amadio).
Dr. Kaye was very pleased with the response she and her group received from members of Congress. “The teams were all very receptive to our causes, including coverage at work for family-building benefits and removing family-building barriers for military members and veterans. We identified pro-family legislation in the House and the Senate that we support and asked that Nevada provide support for these bills as well.”
Why is Dr. Kaye so passionate about taking part in this event?
As a Las Vegas fertility doctor, Dr. Kaye believes it’s her duty to participate in events like Advocacy Day 2022.
“As a representative for The Fertility Center of Las Vegas, I feel it is important to take time to advocate for our patients, and even just women like myself who waited until later to start family building,” she explains. “Diagnosing infertility and recommending the effective treatments that we have available are only helpful if people have the ability to utilize them. Our lawmakers can help increase accessibility to these family-building options.”
In addition, Dr. Kaye feels it’s important to improve access to affordable fertility care for members of traditionally underserved groups, including our military service members, our veterans and our LGBTQ+ communities. “Lack of access for these groups is a problem that should be addressed at a national level, and our voices were heard during Advocacy Day.”
