In 2002, Betty Reiser, an ovarian cancer survivor, developed the "Ovarian Cancer National Alliance Survivors Teaching Students: Saving Women's Lives ®" program. The mission of the STS ® program is to save women's lives by helping future healthcare practitioners learn to diagnose ovarian cancer in its earliest, most treatable stages. During the STS® presentation, ovarian cancer survivors, or their caregivers, tell stories of their experiences dealing with the disease. The Survivors Teaching Students ® program has been presented to third year medical students at U. of L. and U.K. since 2006. There are plans to expand the STS ® program in Kentucky to include programs of Osteopathy, Physician's Assistant, Nurse Practioner, and Nursing students.
