The Hillel Yaffe Medical Center IVF Unit’s staff held a professional conference on IVF for an audience that was chiefly made up of community administrators at all levels. The goal: improving and making the service more effective regarding bureaucracy, while also strengthening the link between staff in the community and the hospital, and exposing them to the Unit’s broad activity and successes in fertility treatments.
