Initiated by our late founder, Mrs. Patricia Franchi Flaherty, the Learning for Living with Ovarian Cancer Symposium is an annual forum and the first of its kind to educate and update ovarian cancer patients and survivors—at no cost to them—on the latest ovarian cancer research, treatments and therapies.
During the Symposium, medical experts in the field of gynecological oncology and treatment present the most recent updates and critical information.
Through this interactive, informational program, patients receive the unique opportunity to listen to, learn from, and ask questions of these key doctors on the forefront of gynecological medicine.
