The New York Times reported today on a study that found most women with ovarian cancer receive inadequate care. The article discusses research presented at the 2013 meeting of the Society of Gynecologic Oncologists (SGO), which found that women are more likely to get optimal care when treated at a medical center that handles a high volume of ovarian cancer cases.
The New York Times article mentions the Alliance’s 2012 report card, Ovarian Cancer: A Call for State Action, which ranked states in part on the number of gynecologic oncologists by population. Click here to explore our report card.
