Looking Back at OCRA’s Virtual 2020 National Conference:

Alyssa Milano and Patrick Dempsey
Our 2020 National Conference featured special appearances by Alyssa Milano, Patrick Dempsey, and more!

The global pandemic may have upended our original plans, but it didn’t stop us from uniting the ovarian cancer community from all over the world albeit virtually!  The format was different (no in-person hugs) but we provided the same eye-opening, educational content from the country’s top researchers and doctors about every aspect of ovarian cancer, including treatment, wellness, advocacy and survivorship, as we always have but this time with a few surprises. Check out the 2020 agenda!

While we were undeniably disappointed that we weren’t able to see everyone in person, there was a significant up-side to moving our conference online: Now anyone who wanted to attend had the chance, no travel necessary! We were excited to expand our strong and welcoming community to reach even more people with important updates in the ovarian cancer field and OCRA’s patient support programs.
