On January 13th and 14th 2013, physicians and staff from the Center for Fertility and Gynecology participated in a unique and groundbreaking event called the Fertility Planit.  The event, a first of its kind gathering in Los Angeles, brought together a variety of experts from all facets of the fertility world.  From reproductive endocrinologists and embryologists to lawyers and women’s advocates, the experts discussed, espoused and collaborated on all topics fertility.  In addition to the on-site 1,100 registrants, 50,000 more people participated in the event online and contributed questions through Twitter and Facebook.


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   

The other panel members included:

Melanie Notkin: an entrepreneur, author, speaker, marketer and the leading voice of the nearly 50 percent of American women who are childless.  Melanie is founder of the website

Tracey Cleantis: a Licensed Marriage and Family therapist, psychodynamic psychotherapist and writer.

Dr. Janis Goldman: a Clinical Psychologist and Psychoanalyst, as well as an Associate Clinical Professor of Psychology at UCLA.

Lisa Manterfield: an author, blogger, speaker, and coach. Lisa is also the founder of

Exposition Hall

In addition, the Center for Fertility and Gynecology sponsored a booth in the exposition hall at the event.  The venue allowed CFG physicians and staff to interact and discuss fertility with numerous patients and professionals. 

The event was truly a smashing success, if you have questions about future events or want to discuss fertility, feel free to contact us, we’d be happy to speak with you.
