Survivor Education

Survivor Education Programs

Survivor Education is a key part of OGCC/Rhonda’s Club’s mission. We organize and sponsor quarterly educational seminars featuring top researchers and clinicians from the Washington-Baltimore region to provide cancer survivors and their families and friends with the latest information on research findings, clinical trials, treatments and therapies. Speakers welcome questions and comments from the audience following their presentations.  All programs are free of charge and open to the public!

Please join us for our next two programs in 2011:

Edward L. Trimble, MD, MPH, Unanswered Questions in Gynecologic Cancer---And How We Can Get Answers, May 23, 2011

Michael V. Seiden, MD, President and CEO of Fox Chase Cancer Center, Philadelphia, PA, September 12, 2011
