How Dr. Pfennig’s research is transforming health care

One of her current research projects is focused on the study of infertility in health care workers who are exposed to a variety of psychological, physical, and physiological occupational hazards.  We hope to be able to first understand the prevalence of infertility among female physicians to potentially identify barriers to pregnancy success and develop appropriate recommendations.  We are also looking at treatment options for sexually treated infections to improve patient compliance and patient satisfaction.
