Texas enthusiasm

I met literally thousands of people who work in fertility clinics all over the world at the American Society of Reproductive Medicine Scientific Congress and Expo is San Antonio, Texas.

Society President Richard Poulson was a great host and the two of us were surprised at the enthusiasm of the audience who rushed the stage after we did a little chat talking about my life.

I don’t know how many people took photos on their mobile phones and I lost count of the number of wonderful stories I heard about how people were inspired to take up a career in embryology as a result of my Mum’s story. It was a fantastic few days and I think my Mum would be amazed at how many people now have jobs in the field of IVF and assisted reproduction.
