Gynecologic Cancer Education Speakers Bureau




To support our mission of awareness, Let Every Woman Know – Alaska funds the travel of various speakers to locations all over the state to educate and inform the public. These speakers are GYN cancer survivors and care providers whose knowledge can greatly contribute to the movement of letting every woman know the signs and symptoms of GYN cancer, why we should “be down there aware”, vaccinate our sons and daughters against HPV, and lead healthy lifestyles. They give comprehensive presentations, workshops and experiential learning for leadership and support of women’s health in Alaska. These speakers attend various forums in which these presentations can be given ranging from Rotary and book clubs to office places, health care centers, expos, education centers, and more.

In 2015, Let Every Woman Know-Alaska sponsored speakers in Juneau and Bethel in conjunction with screening N.E.D. the movie.

Let Every Woman Know-Alaska had a great time in Kodiak! The Kodiak Best Western Inn and Convention Center hosted the event on April 23rd  2016 from 10 am-4 pm. In addition to having a Gynecologic Cancer Awareness table at the conference, Let Every Woman Know held screenings of the movies No Evidence of Disease, Someone You Love, and Lady Ganga.

On Saturday, October 29th Let Every Woman Know-Alaska had a Gynecologic Cancer Awareness table at the Cancer Connection 2016 Health Forum in Juneau. In addition to our table at the event, Let Every Woman Know showed a special screening of N.E.D. the movie.

In 2017, Let Every Woman Know-Alaska went to Ketchikan on Friday, February 24th for the Friday Night Insight series held at the SE Alaska Discovery Center.  Dr. Joanie Mayer Hope spoke about GYN cancers following the viewing of a 12 minute introductory film. The entire presentation is available through facebook live: leteverywomanknow-alaska

*Fairbanks: in October 2017, LEWK had a special screening of the movie NED at Fairbanks Memorial Hospital in collaboration with Fairbanks Cancer Treatment Center.

In 2018, LEWK and Underground Dance Company went to Bethel for the Cama-i festival in March. We are so thankful for the experience and hope to participate again in the future. We are so grateful to the Bethel community for embracing us, housing us, feeding us and making sure that we had a fantastic time.
