Ovar’coming Together provides free presentations regarding ovarian cancer to businesses, groups, and community organizations throughout Indiana.
Help spread the word about ovarian cancer by requesting free literature to display at your business, house of worship, library or community organization.
Ovar'coming Together regularly attends health fairs, conferences and other community events in order to distribute literature regarding ovarian cancer. If your organization, group or event holds a health fair, please let us know. We'd love to attend.
Presentations for Health Care Professionals
Nothing more effectively puts a face to an illness than meeting patients who have received a cancer diagnosis and learning from their experiences. Contact Ovar’coming Together to schedule such a meeting for the staff of your medical facility. Ovar’coming Together will send a representative to your location to discuss her own individual experiences and challenges with ovarian cancer.
Survivors Teaching Students
Ovar'coming Together's newest educational initiative is Survivors Teaching Students®. The program puts ovarian cancer survivors into medical classrooms to share their stories and key information about ovarian cancer. Students gain insights into listening to patient concerns and become sensitized to the psychosocial aspects of ovarian cancer as well as the need for early detection. Survivors and students directly interact to enhance the students’ learning. Students are surveyed to assess their understanding of the disease and the presentation’s value. Ovarian cancer survivors, volunteers and medical teaching schools are always needed and invited to join the effort. Training is provided to survivors and facilitators.
