Ovacome Members Day 2016

We would like to invite you to the forthcoming Members Day on Saturday 5th March; with an exciting line up of speakers to update you on the latest treatments for ovarian cancer and how to get by day to day with the effects of the disease.

The day provides an opportunity to hear from some eminent speakers, to meet other members and share experiences and information. It is also an opportunity to meet Ovacome staff and feed your views to us, which can in turn influence the way Ovacome operates in the future.

This year we will be joined by Dr Marcia Hall, consultant in medical oncology at Mount Vernon Hospital. Dr Hall will update members on the latest research and news in ovarian cancer treatment.

We will also be hearing from Professor Usha Menon about the UKCTOCS trial, one of the largest trials ever performed, involving 202,638 women. Professor Menon will present the key findings released in December last year. Dr Adam Rosenthal will be also be updating us about the latest developments of the UKFOCSS trial.

Then in an afternoon session, which will follow lunch, we will be joined by Ovacome fellow, Sarah Leonard who will introduce the research being funded by Ovacome at the University of Birmingham. The last session will be focused on survivorship and life after cancer. We will hear from Noeline Young, who worked on the National Cancer Survivorship Initiative programme for many years.

Refreshments are provided so please come and join us for lunch, have a catch up with old friends and make some new ones.
