YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – State Sen. Joe Schiavoni is holding a town hall meeting next week to discuss fertility centers errors.

The meeting is scheduled for Monday, March 26 from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the Newburgh Heights Community Room in Newburgh Heights, near Cleveland.

Schiavoni said he wants to hear from families impacted by the recent fertility clinic incidents in Northeast Ohio and California and welcomes ideas he can take back to the state Senate.

Members of the public are invited to attend.

“We need to figure out what’s going on so we can work to make sure it never happens again in our state. This town hall will give everyone a chance to come together and offer ideas” that Schiavoni can take at the state level.


His statement went on to say that “Members of the public are invited to attend and share their stories or their fears about the current lack of regulation over this industry” and he welcomes ideas for actions he can take at the state level.

In response to Senator Schiavoni’s town hall, Peiffer Wolf Carr & Kane’s managing shareholder, Joseph Peiffer, said, “This state action is going to be the needed catalyst for change in a rogue industry with woefully inadequate oversight. Clearly, reliance on self-regulation isn’t working.” Peiffer continued, “We fully support Schiavoni’s mission to protect Ohioans, and, if sought, we will offer our full support and institutional knowledge of the fertility industry.”

Peiffer Wolf Carr & Kane attorneys Joe Peiffer, Lydia Floyd, and James Booker will be in attendance to show support, offer any knowledge, and answer any questions.
