Our own Dr. Lisa Hasty has been invited to join the cast of the
2015 Dancing Stars of Atlanta supporting the Alzheimer's Association. She has decided to step out
of her comfort zone and dance in support of this worthy cause.
Meet Lisa Hasty MD, FACOG
Dr. Lisa Hasty is a founding partner of Atlanta Center for Reproductive
Medicine and fertility doctor practicing in Atlanta, GA. She received
her undergraduate degree in Pre-Med from Davidson College. Upon graduation,
she returned to her home state of Georgia in 1982 to study and earn her
medical degree from Emory University School of Medicine.
Dr. Hasty is Board Certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology and Reproductive
Endocrinology and Infertility. Her particular areas of interest include
in vitro fertilization, treating uterine myomas and third party reproduction.
As a fertility doctor in Atlanta, GA, Dr. Hasty's vision when she founded
ACRM in 1998 was to dedicate herself to caring for infertile patients
through thoughtful, cost-effective and, most importantly, honest treatment
with an individualized approach. These are fundamentals Dr. Hasty continues
to value in her work today. Her warm smile and expert care are beacons
of strength for all patients she cares for.
About Dancing Stars of Atlanta
Dancing Stars is an exciting benefit for the Alzheimer’s Association,
Georgia Chapter. Reinventing the popular show, “Dancing with the
Stars”, this fundraising event is comprised of approximately 12
local celebrity dancers paired with 12 professional dancers, all raising
funds by gaining votes! Then the dancers come together to compete in a
one night gala dance competition, it’s an event you do not want to miss!
Dancing Stars aim is to support research and the programs and services
provided for individuals with Alzheimer's disease, as well as their
families and caregivers. Presently, someone develops Alzheimer's every
67 seconds, and this disease is the sixth leading cause of death in the
country and the only one that is increasing. Without your support, the
Alzheimer's Association will cease to aid those who are affected by
this devastating disease.
Currently, more than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer's and that
number is expected to grow to as many as 16 million by 2050.
