IGCS is committed to providing health education to help patients learn about gynecologic cancers and assist patients and their families in gaining knowledge about their disease and become as informed as possible.

To support this goal, IGCS has partnered with the Gynecologic Cancer Inter Group (GCIG) and other organizations to provide education directed at patients, their families and significant others. Since 2012, a Patient Summit has been held during the IGCS Biennial Meetings offering information regarding state-of-the-art treatment and therapeutics, the latest clinical trial developments, quality of life and wellness issues.
