The Next Level of Ovarian Cancer Care

The Next Level of Ovarian Cancer Care

At the University of Alabama, Birmingham (UAB), women with ovarian cancer now have access to “wrap-around” services. The service goal is to “make their lives easier.”

It’s a bundled approach that not only offers oncology treatment but also addresses the women’s “wellness needs.”  

Each patient in the program is given her own care coordinator to help guide her through the system and to acquaint her with the specialized services the program offers.

It’s noteworthy that the program not only accepts women diagnosed with ovarian cancer, but also those who are in remission, or even at risk for the disease.
