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 Many are then offered later in an archived version so that someone may watch and/or listen to the taped version of the earlier webinar.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.

    Tumor Profiling & Treatment Presentation

    May 18, 5pm-6:15pm

    Zoom Audio/Video (Login Information in Registration Confirmation)

    Did you know that the genetic makeup of your tumor may influence the way your doctor treats your ovarian cancer?

    Some tumors are genetically disposed to accumulate more errors than others, and that treating these types of tumors with a new class of drugs called PARP inhibitors may significantly reduce the cancers progression.

    Please join us to learn more about how genetics and PARP inhibitors are being used to help patients.

    There will be a Q&A segment after the presentation.

    Dr. Sharyn N. Lewin, Medical Director, Division of Gynecologic Oncology, Holy Name Medical Center
