Survivors Teaching Students® brings ovarian cancer survivors and caregivers into medical education programs to educate future healthcare providers about ovarian cancer by sharing stories of diagnosis, treatment and survivorship, along with facts about the disease. Medical/healthcare students interact with and learn from ovarian cancer survivors in a classroom setting.
Survivors Teaching Students® is a national program facilitated by Ovarian Cancer Research Alliance. Local programs SLOCA partners with include:
- Washington University

The Survivors Teaching Students® program is offered nationally in 325 healthcare programs in 36 states. In 2019, more than 8,000 future healthcare providers heard the stories of more than 900 survivor-volunteers.
