Survivors Teaching Students®

Survivors Teaching Students: Saving Women’s Lives®

Judy’s Mission is proud to partner with the Ovarian Cancer Research Alliance to facilitate their Survivors Teaching Students® program in Houston. This national program aims to educate the next generation of medical professionals on the signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer by bringing survivors into the classrooms of medical and nursing students to share their unique stories along with facts about the disease. Students are able to interact with and learn from actual patients.
