Raising public awareness in matters of prevention, early detection, understanding of symptoms and treatment options in gynae cancers, healthy lifestyle has been on the ESGO agenda for many years.
ESGO organizes multiple activities such as ESGO Awareness Run that took place in Nice, France in October 2015, annual Patient Seminars that – hopefully – brought the European community to at least marginally reducing the occurrence of gynae cancers, improved public education and raised general awareness.
Check out below the upcoming awareness activities.
