Outreach Program: We
are constantly in the community participating in health
fairs, symposiums, and lectures at schools, universities,
hospitals, community meetings throughout the year to spread
awareness about Ovarian Cancer to address this important women's health
issue. Our T.E.A.L.® CEO is often invited as a guest speaker to spread
awareness of the signs,
symptoms, and risk factors for Ovarian Cancer at these events.
T.E.A.L.®'s September Awareness Program: Each September, T.E.A.L.® partners with local businesses and
organizations to turn New York City and beyond teal to spread awareness about Ovarian
Cancer. Brooklyn Businesses tie a teal ribbon around the tree outside each
business with a window poster that describes what the ribbon symbolizes. T.E.A.L.® partners with Turn The Towns Teal® to provide ribbons for this
initiative. This includes a massive city wide online awareness initiative for
September and throughout the year. Local Organizations also supported T.E.A.L.®
during the Month of September by displaying T.E.A.L.® Awareness Cards,
brochures, and donation boxes, inviting us to speaking engagements, and
lighting or decorating their building the color teal.

advertisements are on subway platforms, kiosks, buses, and T.E.A.L.® Banners around Prospect Park in addition to local
business and community centers. T.E.A.L.® chose six Ovarian Cancer survivors to photograph in order

Ovarian Cancer Awareness Day at Citi Field for a NY Mets game. T.E.A.L.® turns
the stadium teal, drawing attention to the color and the cause. A PSA is given
at the beginning of the game addressing Ovarian Cancer. A portion of each
