Our medical director, Dr. Sonya Kashyap, has recently begun running with Dr. Spence Pentland of Yinstill Reproductive Wellness. On their run, the two doctors were both inspired by the supportive nature of their outings and saw it as an opportunity to talk about their work in the fertility field. From this inspiration stemmed the idea for Fertility Friends Walk/Run Club Vancouver.
Genesis and Yinstill have decided to partner in a walk and run group (running is typically discouraged for women who are undergoing stimulation for IVF treatments, which is why we would like to invite you to also walk). Employees of both clinics, patients undergoing treatment, those who are struggling to conceive and members of their support group are welcome to come out and enjoy some physical activity, Vancouver’s gorgeous scenery and the company of others who understand the pain of infertility. During Wednesday mornings at 6am beginning August 20, 2014, we will depart from the Jericho parking lot (East) towards the Spanish Banks for a 3 km run round trip. We invite all of you to join in this opportunity to improve your health in a supportive environment.
