The Bites of Wellness Lunch and Learn Series is a monthly talk about a variety of health topics, including everything from how to squeeze more physical activity into your day to finding your life purpose.

Beating the Biological Clock

Presented by

Winifred Mak, M.D., Ph.D. 

Please join the HealthPoint Wellness Program and the Dell Medical School for a Bites of Wellness presentation on fertility. Participants will learn about ovarian aging, why women have a biological clock, and what options women have to beat this clock (preserving fertility with egg freezing), and what options single women have. There will also be discussions around ways to optimize physical and emotional health for fertility.

Dr. Mak is an Assistant Professor at the Dell Medical School in Women’s Health and a physician at Reproductive Medicine Associates (RMA) of Texas. Prior to joining Dell Medical School, Dr. Mak served as assistant professor in the Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Sciences Department and Director of the Early Recurrent Pregnancy Loss Program at Yale School of Medicine where she focused on the full range of reproductive endocrinology diseases including infertility, recurrent pregnancy loss and polycystic ovary syndrome. While at Yale, Dr. Mak was one of a few physician-scientists appointed by the National Institute of Health as a prestigious Women’s Reproductive Health Research Scholar. Dr. Mak’s life-long mission has been to use her research studies to help build families, and she strongly believes that her job as a physician is to give 110% of her effort to all her patients.
