Larry King, host of Larry King Live, interviewed Dr. Beth Karlan, the Communication Chair for the Foundation for Women’s Cancer (at that time, named the Gynecologic Cancer Foundation) on his popular evening CNN show. As a result of the interview and promotion of the Foundation’s hotline, calls increased by over 60% in the subsequent months thanks to the leadership and support of Mr. King.
Community outreach played an important role in the 2018 Society of Gynecologic Oncology Annual Meeting on Women’s Cancer, held March 24-27 in New Orleans.
September is Gynecologic Cancer Awareness Month. After creating the month in 1999, the Foundation strives to bring attention about these cancers through public awareness campaigns.
