Panel Discussion

Our very own Dr. Kalan was honored to participate in one of the panels titled “Letting go of having genetic offspring”.  During the session, Dr. Kalan spoke about becoming a parent through egg or sperm donation.  Further, he explained why he believes that people over-emphasize the role of genetics in defining parenthood.  You can watch the session here http://fertilityplanitshow.com/videos/letting-go-of-having-genetic-offspring/
