Community Outreach

MOCA works to educate the public on the subtle symptoms of ovarian cancer to promote early detection and better treatment outcomes.

Health Fairs and Parades

MOCA exhibits at health fairs and conferences throughout the year. In addition to connecting with healthcare professionals and people across the state, these events give us the opportunity to:

  • Spread awareness of the symptoms of ovarian cancer
  • Promote earlier detection
  • Answer questions about our organization
  • Promote our support resources

Suggest an event for MOCA to attend

Please let us know if there is an event in your area that you’d like us to consider. We’re especially interested in reaching out to areas of the state that might not otherwise have access to our information. Please email Community Support Program Manager Stefanie Gliniany at sgliniany@mnovarian.org or call her at 612-584-3550 with your ideas.

Represent MOCA at a public event

Interested in representing MOCA at a health fair or conference? This is a great opportunity for anyone, including men and women who’ve never had ovarian cancer. If you’re interested in volunteering as a health fair representative, please email us at info@mnovarian.org.

Parade Awareness Initiative

MOCA has a teal float available for our supporters to use to help raise awareness. This float is available to “check-out” during the summer months and be towed behind a vehicle to raise awareness at summer parades and events. To request more information about the MOCA Float, email us at info@mnovarian.org.

MOCA Lights the Night

Each September, MOCA brings teal to the skylines of cities across Minnesota through our MOCA Lights the Night effort. We light up buildings and landmarks throughout the state to help raise awareness and start a conversation about ovarian cancer. We are always looking for more connections to help us light up buildings in teal! If you have a suggestion about a building or landmark, please email us at info@mnovarian.org.

Tie it Teal with MOCA

Tie it Teal is MOCA’s award-winning symptom awareness campaign that engages youth sports teams throughout the state. MOCA will provide teal shoelaces to Minnesota youth sports teams that want to help us raise ovarian cancer awareness.
