Share Your Ovarian Cancer Story

National Program: Survivors Teaching Students:  Saving Women’s Lives® (STS)

“To address the issue of early detection, the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund Alliance [OCRFA] conducts the Survivors Teaching Students: Saving Women’s Lives®(STS) program. The goal of the program is to enhance health professional students’ understanding of ovarian cancer symptoms and risk factors in order to facilitate earlier diagnosis and detection. STS achieves its goal by bringing ovarian cancer survivors into the classrooms of health professional students. The survivors share their stories and key information on the disease. The program is currently offered to a variety of medical and health professional students—our future diagnosticians—including medical, nurse practitioner, physician assistant and nursing students nationally. The program lasts approximately one hour, during which ovarian cancer survivors deliver crucial messages about the risks and symptoms of ovarian cancer.”
