Investigating the Effects of Infertility and the Quest for a Longer Life

Unraveling the Mystery of Infertility and Longevity: A WJCT Talk Program Explores the Connection between Healthcare and Daily Life

“What’s Health Got to Do with It?” is a WJCT talk program in Jacksonville that explores the connection between healthcare and daily life. This week, the program focuses on the topic of infertility and its impact on healthcare.

Infertility is a widespread issue that affects millions of individuals worldwide. Various health conditions such as endometriosis, low sperm count, ovulatory disorders, and low testosterone can contribute to infertility. Adinah Johnson, a retired psychology professor, marriage coach, and author of “Butterfly Blue: The Pain of Infertility and the Power of Forgiveness,” shares her personal story of dealing with infertility on the program. Dr. Laura Mauri, senior vice president and chief scientific, medical, and regulatory officer at Medtronic also joins the discussion to discuss increasing lifespan.

The topic of longevity is often overlooked when it comes to healthcare. Many people don’t have conversations with their healthcare providers about it because they don’t see it as necessary or because they are unsure what questions to ask. However, with advancements in health care technology, there may be solutions that can assist individuals in living longer and healthier lives. A recent survey conducted by Medtronic revealed that 80% of Americans believe technology can play a role in achieving this goal yet only 18% are currently utilizing it.
