Community Outreach Program
The Community Relations office in the Department of Gynecologic Oncology and Reproductive Medicine develops and plans community relations programs (including special events, fundraising and outreach projects) and educational materials to build awareness about risk factors and symptoms of ovarian cancer.
The Blanton-Davis Ovarian Cancer Research Program benefits from community relations fundraising events throughout the year.
If you or your organization would like to receive print materials, or if you would like to arrange for a speaker on the topic of ovarian cancer, please complete the speaker request form (pdf). If you would like to get involved with upcoming events, or if you have additional questions, please e-mail Community Relations and Development at GynOncCommunityRelations@mdanderson.org or call 713-792-2765.
