CADE Foundation CEO Dr. Camille Hammond Weighs in on the Impact of COVID-19 on Fertility at 4th Annual South Florida Fertility Expo
Dr. Camille Hammond, CEO of the Tinina Q. Cade Foundation is among the distinguished speakers and panelists at the 4th Annual Fertility Expo/ Webinar Edition, Saturday, April 24th, 2021. Presented by Memorial Family Birthplace, the Expo will be hosted on a virtual platform from 10am-6pm Est. The event coincides with National Infertility Awareness Week (April 18–24, 2021.)
Dr Hammond and her husband, Dr Jason Hammond, co founded the Cade Foundation in 2005 to provide support to families with infertility. The foundation was named after founders’ (Drs Jason and Camille Hammond) mother, Dr Tinina Cade. Dr Cade carried and delivered the couple’s triplets following 5 years of infertility for the Hammonds. She delivered her grand-triplets at 55 years old, making her the oldest woman to deliver triplets at that point.
On April 24th Dr. Hammond will share her expertise with participants at the 4th Annual South Florida Fertility Expo on topics such as the impact of the COVID- 19 Virus on fertility, the impact of the vaccine on fertility and pregnancy, and more.
“I am honored to provide support for families with infertility and look forward to discussing what is known about the impact of COVID and the vaccines on fertility, family building,” said Dr. Hammond.
Dr. Hammond completed her undergraduate studies at the University of Richmond, medical school at the University of Maryland School of Medicine and residency and fellowship at Johns Hopkins and the National Cancer Institute (respectively).
In addition to her work with the Foundation, she is actively engaged in social, civic, community and philanthropic efforts through the nation.
Statistics highlight that US birthrates are at an all-time low. Women in the United States are having fewer babies than ever before, creating a fertility rate of 1.73 births per mother, according to data from the National Vital Statistics System that was analyzed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The national movement, National Infertility Awareness Week® unites millions of Americans who want to remove the stigmas and barriers that stand in the way of building families. For more information call Michelle Mckoy at (305) 424–6984 or visit southfloridafertilityexpo.com
