Going To Any Lengths for June World Infertility Month

Monday, Jun 1 2020

Susan R. Karon

Susan R. Karon’s column, “Going To Any Lengths for June World Infertility Month," for Thrive Global, reflects on how trying to help other women going through their infertility journey is her way of giving back. Susan is a Life Member of Hadassah and currently is Member Engagement Director at Temple Beth Elohim in Wellesley, MA where she has worked for the past 25 years.

In her column, Susan advises to "never give up" and reflects on how inspired she was by Hadassah’s reconceiving Infertility Initiative which raises awareness, destigmatizes and confronts prejudices and misconceptions on this once-taboo subject, drives policy change and empowers patients to advocate for their own health. This column is part of Hadassah’s ongoing series of articles in Thrive Global, the media platform founded by Arianna Huffington.
