I am very grateful for the opportunity given to me by Merck Foundation to be the first embryologist in Liberia. I worked as a clinician and came across couples who have struggled to have a child but to no avail. Being in an African society especially Liberia, couples are stigmatized for not having a child. So, my dream was to advance my studies and help couples in need of having a child. Now I am glad that through this knowledge obtained from Merck Embryology/Fertility Training Program, couples can now have the opportunity to get local fertility care to overcome the stigma they have faced over the years.
Through Merck Foundation program in partnership with Liberia First Lady , Our country for the first time has their own local clinical embryologists and fertility specialists .
