For gay men who want to become parents through surrogacy, the MHB educational conferences are a rare opportunity to get curated information, expert advice and access to a wide range of relevant service providers — and from an unbiased non-profit organization.
Due to public health concerns we are offering this 2020 conference late, and in an elaborate virtual format utilizing the specialized REMO platform that allows for presentations, breakout sessions, expo “tables” and effective interaction. MHB has already used this REMO platform for several of our 2020 and 2021 programs, and received rave reviews from both attendees and exhibitors.
The virtual format should make participation even easier for gay men near and far, while providing as comprehensive program as ever, including:
How to evaluate various surrogacy destinations and options
The medical and legal aspects of surrogacy
How the COVID-19 pandemic affected surrogacy and IVF
Opportunities to meet 1:1 with gay-friendly agencies, clinics, law firms, and other surrogacy providers
Insurance & budgeting issues for U.S. and Canadian surrogacy
How to get your surrogacy journey started with online resources, member discounts, and financial assistance from MHB
On the Friday before the conference (May 14), we will once again host the Advocacy & Research Forum, to discuss the social, ethical, legal and empirical aspects of surrogacy and LGBT parenting.
Proceeds from sponsorship and exhibiting fees will benefit the Gay Parenting Assistance Program and Our Family Coalition.
