Ruth Ann Freedman’s column, “My Struggle With Infertility and How It Can Help Others” for June World Interfility Month for Thrive Global, relates how her infertility challenges inspired her to help others facing the same issue. Currently National Co-Chair of Hadassah’s Philanthropy Division, Ruth Ann is a Past President, Hadassah Chicago and an elected member of Hadassah’s National Board.

In her column, Ruth Ann reflects how inspired she was by Hadassah’s reconceiving Infertility Initiative which raises awareness, destigmatizes and confronts prejudices and misconceptions on this once-taboo subject, drives policy change and empowers patients to advocate for their own health. This column is part of Hadassah’s ongoing series of articles in Thrive Global, the media platform founded by Arianna Huffington.
