Event description

Description

Survivors Teaching Students® is a volunteer program that brings the faces and voices of ovarian cancer survivors and caregivers into the classrooms of health professional students to teach them about women’s experiences with the disease.

ANZGOG is proud to announce the launch of this established program in Australia.

If you have a personal experience of ovarian cancer, you are invited to the first Sydney Information Session to find out more about becoming part of the NSW volunteer program.

Survivors through their own personal experiences are in a unique position to help students become more sensitive to the risks and symptoms of ovarian cancer so that when they go into practice they can diagnose women sooner and save lives. Our goal is to increase the number of health care providers who recognize the risk factors and symptoms of ovarian cancer so that the disease is detected earlier.

This program is licensed to ANZGOG by the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund Alliance in the US. We are excited to be part of this international collaboration which includes US, Canada and the UK. Over 1000 volunteers around the world can personally attest to the fact that it is one of the most empowering things a survivor or caregiver can do.

Please register your interest in coming along to hear more about Survivors Teaching Students®. Light refreshments provided. Onstreet parking can be difficult and there is limited paid parking. http://www.mylifehouse.org.au/about-lifehouse/how-to-get-here/parking/
