JWS Fund Hosts Community Awareness
Meetings on Ovarian Cancer Risk Factors

The Julie W. Schaffner Ovarian Cancer Fund occasionally hosts free community awareness meetings in which a panel of doctors discuss risk factors, early detection and the link between ovarian and breast cancers. The meetings allow for open dialog between the experts and attendees and are tailored to meet women’s specific needs.

An awareness meeting held in Winnetka, Ill. at the Community House was a great success. More than 30 event attendees gave the program and its overall relevance very high marks — 6.84 points on a 7-point scale. One attendee wrote in her comments: “This seminar literally changed my life. I’m going to pay more attention to these factors from now on.”
