OCRA’s National Conference is going virtual on September 29 – October 2!

The global pandemic may have upended our original plans, but it can’t stop us from uniting the ovarian cancer community from all over the world.  The format may be different (no in-person hugs) but we promise to provide 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. 

Past attendees have said that this conference is a can’t miss event for the ovarian cancer community:  a gathering of hope, inspiration, new found knowledge and sisterhood.

What can you expect from the 2020 National Conference?

We’re pleased to announce that this year’s virtual conference will have everything you’ve come to love—and more! 

Take a sneak peek at the National Conference agenda!

While we’re undeniably disappointed that we won’t be able to see everyone in person, there is a significant up-side to moving our conference online: Now anyone who wants to attend will have the chance, no travel necessary! We’re 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.
