Mission:  promote ovarian cancer awareness and education; support those diagnosed and survivors; and advocate for public policy and funding.

Webinars and Teleconferences

Webinars and teleconferences are hosted by different organizations on different topics. Most webinars last about an hour, are scheduled on a set date at a set time, and require pre-registration. Many are then offered later in an archived version so that someone may watch and/or listen to the taped version of the earlier webinar.

Our calendar will list webinars and teleconferences on the date they are initially offered. Refer to the resource list (to the right) for a list of archived teleconferences and webinars.
