Educational Programs

The Foundation for Women’s Cancer is committed to providing support to women as their gynecologic cancer journey continues. Each year hundreds of women from almost every state in the country attend one of the Foundation’s free, usually day-long, courses. These courses provide the most current information about treatment options, research and quality of life strategies taught by leading experts, mostly gynecologic oncologists. Most courses focus on a specific gynecologic cancer—cervical cancer, ovarian cancer or uterine cancer.

In addition to providing women with the opportunity to ask questions and interact with gynecologic oncologists and researchers, there is time for women to network and share their experience with other women. Family members, friends and other caregivers also are welcomed.

Pre-registration is required for each course and is available online 30 days prior to the date of the course. Since a complimentary meal is served to each course attendee, the Foundation would appreciate it if registrants unable to attend the course notify us at education@foundationforwomenscancer.org.
