Powell-Drescher Foundation - Ovarian Cancer Research, Advocacy and Education

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of having a zoom call with Sachia Powell. Sachia is an ovarian cancer survivor, advocate and founder of the the Powell-Drescher Foundation We discussed the foundation she founded with Dr Drescher and a number of advocacy and education ideas. Here are two opportunities coming up for advocates.

The Powell-Drescher Foundation is hosting a free Zoom presentation on November 20, 2022, to provide information about research advocacy.  During the Zoom presentation, ovarian cancer researcher Dr. Kristin Anderson will provide information about how to navigate a research conference, as well as details about the AACR’s Scientist-Survivor Program (SSP).  Ovarian cancer survivor/research advocate Annie Ellis will share her experience with the SSP as well as her insights as an experienced research advocate.   To apply to attend the presentation click here
Along with that education program the organization will provide details about their new program an opportunity for an advocate to attend the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) Annual Conference in Orlando in April 2023.To learn more or apply click here.
