Speakers and panelists will bring their expertise and perspectives on genetic testing for ovarian cancer and discuss ways to we can advocate to overcome barriers, concerns, and challenges in this area.
With World Ovarian Cancer Day (May 8th) falling on the same day that many countries celebrate Mother’s Day this year, what a special occasion and event to bring the patient advocacy community together to talk openly about this important issue.
The goals of this roundtable are:

Drive awareness to the disparities and barriers of genetic testing
Review the European experts’ consensus: BRCA/homologous recombination deficiency testing in first-line ovarian cancer
Understand the process and importance of genetic testing
Hear a patient’s perspective to genetic testing
Participating in this active exchange of information across populations, specialties, and regions, attendees will enhance their understanding of important topics and be more empowered to exercise their rights and options related to each.
