IGCS is committed to providing health education to help patients learn about gynecologic cancers and assist patients and their families in gaining knowledge about their disease and become as informed as possible. IGCS has partnered with the Gynecologic Cancer Intergroup (GCIG), advocacy groups and industry sponsors to provide education directed at patients, their families and significant others. Since 2012, a Patient Summit has been held during the IGCS Biennial Meetings offering information regarding state-of-the-art treatment and therapeutics, the latest clinical trial developments, quality of life and wellness issues.
