With extensive video, this 1-hour presentation outlines the identification, and surgical options for a number of conditions including endometriosis, adenomyosis, fallopian tube blockages/damage, fibroids, uterine polyps, low ovarian reserve, isthmocele, chronic endometritis, and ovarian cysts.
Men are consistently overrepresented in severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV2) infection, and coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) severe outcomes, including higher fatality rates. This journal club examines a review that sought to summarize the available literature regarding proposed molecular and cellular markers of COVID-19 infection, their associations with health outcomes, and any reported modification by sex.

Presented by Professor Leonard F. Blackwell, Massey University, New Zealand, Dr. Blackwell was trained in organic chemistry, biochemistry and reproductive physiology. He studied under Professor James Brown at the University of Melbourne in the physiology of ovulation and in the development of the Fertility Meter, a device for monitoring ovarian activity in all its manifestations and one of the only true quantitative point-of-care devices in existence. For the past 36 years, Len was involved in the research and development of urinary assays as point-of-care diagnostic kits and recently with quantitative immune-chromatographic assays. Sadly, Dr. Blackford passed away in late 2020.

Held on July 22, 2020 "virtually", we are grateful to everyone—including the attendees, speakers, and facilitators—who made the conference a success. We heard from Amy Beckley, PhD, on the power of testing progesterone urine metabolites, Dr. Patrick Yeung on endometriosis adhesion prevention, and Dr. Joe Stanford on STORRM as well as a number of new RRM research abstracts. While we couldn't meet physically we enjoyed the opportunity to see everyone virtually. Conference attendees receive free access to recordings and slides.
