European Society of Gynaecological Oncology: Newsflash
ESGO and ENGAGe launch the
first-ever World Gynecologic Oncology Day
in over 20 countries with 50+ partners
Join us on September 20, 2019
Dear Colleagues and Friends,
We are pleased to update you on the progress of the first-ever World Gynecologic Oncology Day launch, spearheaded by ESGO and ENGAGe, the European Network of Gynecologic Cancer Advocacy Groups.
The World GO Day aims to raise awareness and encourage women to get the facts, recognize the signs and take action with the international campaign “GOfor…Awareness, Action, Hope, Life” which will be held simultaneously in more than 20 countries on Sep 20th, 2019.
Over 20 non-profit organizations, mostly from Europe and some from the United States, will organize various national sports-related activities on this day with the slogan “A Game Against Gynecologic Cancers”, a symbolic game against gynecologic cancers played together with survivors, caregivers and health care professionals.
We have started a social media campaign on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. The campaign aims to drive women to engage with and share gynecologic cancers information.
Please share our content on social media networks, hashtag us #worldgoday or #GOfor and let the world know that the GO Day is coming!
We hope this initiative will enhance collaboration among patient groups, strengthen local advocacy activities and provide a platform for stakeholder engagement by bringing local and international attention to gynecologic cancers and educate women on prevention, detection, best treatment options.
Join us to raise awareness on a global stage
on the first World Gynecologic Oncology Day!
