Educate The Medical Community
We need help from our friends in the medical community to spread the word on proactive risk stratification and management by hosting or delivering Women’s Health Provider Education Initiative lectures.
If you work in the medical field, and are passionate about ensuring that other medical professionals are as well versed in breast and ovarian cancer risk stratification and management as they can be, we invite you to take part in our Women’s Health Provider Education Initiative.
Through our program Bright Pink is taking a unique and innovative approach to educating the next generation of women’s healthcare providers on how best to stratify and manage breast and ovarian cancer risk among their patients. The program is centered on a proprietary, research-based lecture entitled “Breast and Ovarian Cancer: Risk Stratification and Management in Young Women.” The lecture has been designed for presentation at departmental Grand Rounds at women’s health residency programs and is followed by a companion case-based learning workshop for residents. The Women’s Health Provider Education Initiative rolled out nationwide in the fall of 2014 and has been delivered to acclaim at Harvard Medical School and Washington University Medical School, and many other medical institutions throughout the country.
“I believe so strongly in all that your organization is doing but this especially. You are going to change the face of medicine. And if just one woman sees a resident you taught and he/she takes that woman seriously the first time, well then it's all been worth it.”
Bright Pink is actively seeking women’s healthcare providers (OB/GYNs, gynecologic oncologists, breast oncologists, breast surgeons, radiologists, nurse practitioners and midwives) interested in delivering breast and ovarian cancer awareness lectures on our behalf.
We ask for a commitment to attend one in-person, day-long training session and deliver one talk per quarter. Bright Pink covers flights and accommodations for the training as well as for each program, and provides a stipend for each talk given.
