This year’s American Society for Reproductive Medicine’s (ASRM) annual scientific meeting took place in Salt Lake City, Utah, where Dr. James Segars received the Kavoussi Family Outstanding Teacher Award.  Dr. Segars is a professor and director of new research in reproductive science and women’s health at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.  Dr. Segars’ prior position was the head of the unit of Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility at the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, a branch of the National Institutes of Health.  He currently leads the mentoring and curriculum in women’s health research at Johns Hopkins.  As an outstanding teacher, Dr. Segars has mentored numerous students, postdoctoral fellows, and clinical fellows.

Dr. Kavoussi states, “None of us would be here doing what we are doing today without our teachers, and it is truly a privilege to be able to give back with this award and support leading teachers in the field of reproductive medicine to help them continue training excellent students and fellows who will continue to advance the field and care for infertile couples.  We could not have been happier about Dr. Segars being selected this year”.
