Understanding Ovarian Cancer Video and Booklet

SGO’s Understanding Ovarian Cancer video (15 min) features the stories of two patients, with expert commentary from SGO member gynecologic oncologists. Olympic gold medal-winning gymnast Shannon Miller shares her own experience with ovarian cancer. This patient-education piece gives viewers an introduction to the staging of the disease, how it can be treated, and how they can make changes to improve their health and well-being. A 32-page companion booklet includes risk factors, symptoms and the diagnosis of ovarian cancer; treatment options; clinical trials; genetic testing; and resources for patients. The video is available on YouTube below, and a PDF of the brochure can be downloaded here. DVDs and print brochures are available as a set in the SGO Store in packs of 10 for distribution in physicians’ offices.
