2018-2019 President Cristin Slater

Cristin Slater, MD

It’s that time again! Spring has sprung and the Pacific Coast Reproductive Society Program Committee has been hard at work planning an inspiring program. Bring your curiosity cap and sunglasses!

This year’s meeting is entitled: Reproductive Curiosities, Challenges, & Conclusions.

One of my favorite quotes by Albert Einstein is:

“I have no special talent, I am only passionately curious”

We are fortunate that we work in a dynamic field in which there are endless topics to be curious about. Our specialty consists of the constant change in scientific realms, social realms, legal realms, and ethical realms.

This year’s program will discuss current reproductive topics ranging from access to care to new diagnostic tools in our field and current reproductive clinical care. We hope that the lectures provide a stimulus for positive change in our field.

PCRS is grateful to its sponsors and exhibitors who help provide us the opportunity to learn and collaborate. A special thank-you to Ferring, EMD Serono, Cooper Surgical, Igenomix, Invitae, and Freedom Fertility.

The PCRS endowment fund continues to allow in training scholarships. PCRS is the perfect place for young RE’s to benefit from seasoned fertility specialists and vice versa.

PCRS’s new management committee, SBI, and the Pacific Coast Board of Directors has focused to continue cultivating good science and enhance the overall attractive PCRS meeting experience. We have increased our poster session layout and have added a Rose Garden gathering to the Saturday afternoon socializing. We have expanded sessions for genetic counselors, reproductive nurses, and in-training fellows.

Get ready to enjoy 80’s nostalgia and dance (moonwalk, electric slide, or footloose) the evening away at the PCRS awards banquet. We had over 160 abstract submissions and are grateful for all of the inspiring science submitted.

Looking forward to seeing you in April. Let’s be curious, learn something, and have an enjoyable time!
