Dr Marisa López-Teijón receives the Objetivo Bienestar 2021 Award for her advances in Assisted Reproduction

In its sixth edition, the Objetivo Bienestar platform has distinguished Dr Marisa López-Teijón with the Innovation Award for her “advances in Assisted Reproduction”. This year, the website has awarded the 8 personalities and brands that have made the greatest contribution to women’s wellbeing. The director of Institut Marquès received the award during an event hosted by Elsa Anka and held in Madrid.

 In her speech, Dr Marisa López-Teijón highlighted how Institut Marquès faced, during the COVID-19 pandemic, the difficulties that health restrictions imposed on those who wanted to have a child through assisted reproduction techniques: innovating in telemedicine. Thus, the number of non-face-to-face consultations increased, online connections with incubators to observe the development of embryos increased, and the formula was found for patients to obtain their semen sample at home and send it to the centre with all the guarantees. She even unveiled a novelty that the centre is already working on: the method for transferring embryos in the patient’s own home.

The VI Objetivo Bienestar Awards have also been celebrated with different actions on the Internet and social networks. Since it was launched in 2014, Objetivo Bienestar has been a Prisma Publicaciones (Grupo Planeta) newspaper that is a pioneer in health, nutrition and healthy habits. Led by the best experts and professionals in the sector, it is consulted by more than 500,000 monthly users. Its content on beauty and lifestyle is also pioneering due to its sustainable and eco-friendly point of view. In this edition, the Objetivo Bienestar Awards have been dedicated to sustainability.
