Team members of the
"Survivors Teaching Students Program® (STS)" of the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance (OCNA) facilitated in San Diego County
by the Ovarian Cancer Alliance (OCA) of San Diego met with Congresswoman Susan Davis.

OCNA's nationwide program was implemented by Peg Ford, President of the Ovarian Cancer Alliance (OCA) of San Diego, at UCSD School of Medicine for Third Year Medical Students and further expanded the program to currently eleven schools of nursing.

Representative Davis took the opportunity to acknowledge and present a Certificate of Special Congressional Recognition
to each of the volunteer team members. The Certificate states "for your work educating and providing support to the medical community through the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance's Survivors Teaching Students Program."
