“Ovarian Cancer: A Call for State Action” Webinar Introducting our Nationwide Report Card
Please join us at 2:00 EDT on Wednesday, June 13, for the launch of our nationwide report card “Ovarian Cancer: A Call for State Action.” This first-of-its-kind report examines the environment for women with ovarian cancer, and ranks all 50 states and the District of Columbia based on laws, policies and programs within the state. The report, which launches June 13, includes suggestions for advocates and legislators, as well as sample legislation that could improve care for women with ovarian cancer.
The launch webinar will feature remarks from the following speakers:
- Dr. Robert Burger will give a brief overview of the current state of ovarian cancer, and why it is critical to examine issues like access to care, education, quality of life and research (the four categories on which we scored each state).
- Cara Tenenbaum, Vice President for Policy and External Affairs at the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance, will delve into the findings and recommendations found in “Ovarian Cancer: A Call for State Action.”
