JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – An event about infertility, polycystic ovary syndrome, endometriosis and nutrition was hosted Saturday by Impact Church and the Jacksonville Center for Reproductive Medicine.

The free event was held from 8:30 a.m. to noon at the church.

"We partnered with Impact Church to explain to the community the issues with infertility, polycystic ovarian disease, and endometriosis," said Yvonne Rice, in charge of marketing social media and event planning for the Jacksonville Center for Reproductive Medicine.

Orangizers said the event was meant to offer hope and have an impact on couples who have had difficulty conceiving.

"We have a holistic approach, which is very different from other providers in the area," Rice said. "Our goal is to get your body to do what God designed it to do, so learning to take care of your body nutritionally with your lifestyle and other changes."

Also at the event were some of Florida's top doctors on infertility, giveaways, swag bags and free screenings.
