Last week PFC's Dr. Carolyn Givens presented at the San Francisco Business Times Top 100 Women-Owned Business luncheon. Each year the San Francisco Business Times prints a special report where they recognize the Top 100 Women-Owned Businesses in the Bay Area. According to the Business Times, "Women-owned businesses are one of the fastest growing segments in the economy, and fuel job creation throughout the Bay Area."

Pacific Fertility Center supports women in business and was a proud sponsor of the luncheon last week. PFC's Dr. Carolyn Givens and Senior Director of Marketing, Renee Scudder, both attended the event.

This August marks the 2nd Anniversary of the official opening of PFC's Donor Egg Bank.  The PFC Donor Egg Bank (DEB) is the first free-standing egg bank in Northern California, and represents the culmination of highly innovative egg freezing technology (vitrification), proven success rates, and a wonderful option for patients seeking donor eggs.  While PFC first started freezing donor eggs using vitrification technology in 2007, and our first baby from frozen donor eggs was born in 2008, we did not officially open our Egg Bank until August 2012.  During those few years, we were further refining techniques in the laboratory, to be as confident as possible about success rates for our patients.
