(May 14, 2019) OCRA received the President’s Award at the first Cancer Community (C2) Awards, created to recognize individuals and organizations who have created positive change in cancer care. The awards – a partnership between AstraZeneca and Scientific American Custom Media – included nominations submitted by organizations from across the cancer ecosystem and participation from an esteemed panel of third-party judges.
OCRA was one of more than 90 nominees. The award was given to honor our Survivors Teaching Students: Saving Women’s Lives® (STS) program. STS brings ovarian cancer survivors and caregivers into medical education programs to educate future healthcare providers about ovarian cancer by sharing stories of diagnosis, treatment and survivorship, along with facts about the disease.
