Who We Are

The Prevent Ovarian Cancer Program (POCP) is an initiative from the Princess Margaret in Toronto, Ontario, Canada that aims to identify women at high risk for ovarian cancer, and offer them options to reduce that risk. Our team is comprised of Gynecologic Oncologists, Genetic Counsellors, Clinical Geneticists and Scientific Researchers all working together to help in the fight against ovarian cancer.
