What better day than International Women's Day to celebrate our 100th Chat. We had fifteen participants join us. You may find our transcript here and additional analytics here.
We began the chat by sharing our updated logo.
The colors now reflect more gynecologic cancer awareness colors.
We shared how #gyncsm chat sessions have been used in three different journal articles. You can view links to these as well as links to articles that reference cancer hashtag communities on our blog's Publications page: . gyncsm.blogspot.com
Next we talked about our chat topics through the years. Check our Chat Topics page (http://gyncsm.blogspot.com/p/chat-topics.html) on our blog to see other topics. Here are three chats mentioned.
- "Research Advocacy" with @RANAdvocate
- "Immunotherapy" with@CSHinrichsMD and patients @SurvivorSueWDC @mandmsportsmom who shared directly about being in a trial.
- "Reading Scientific Posters" with @KDRichardson924 and SASEP team
"#gyncsm re use of symptoms; important of course for early care advocating for work up but it is important re nuances also bc many pts coming blaming themselves for not knowing or coming in earlier when sometimes not be possible. I liked this summary,"
We are a nonprofit raising funds for #ovariancancer research, and promoting scientist/survivor collaboration in research. Sending 2 advocates to AACR next month to participate in SSP. #gyncsm— Powell-Drescher Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation (@PowerOvarian) March 9, 2023
I'm starting a non-clinical gynecologic oncology patent navigator practice. I've been busy applying for grant funding. I will also handle financial matters. #gyncsm— Codemo Writing Services (@roberta_codemo) March 9, 2023
We closed our chat in the usual way asking for TIL "Today I learned" and @gyncsm began by sharing:
