Dallas, TX, March 26, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — In the face of the global pandemic, the NOCC proved its essential value by offering additional services to people when they needed it most. As the uncertainty in our nation continues, the NOCC realizes that the need for connection, healing, and hope is greater than ever. That’s why we are proud to announce the first-ever NOCC Wellness Retreat, an online gathering for hope, inspiration, and support that will take place May 7 and 8, 2021. Day two of the retreat falls on World Ovarian Cancer Day, May 8, when the world comes together to raise our voices in solidarity in the fight against ovarian cancer.
AN IMMERSIVE, INTERACTIVE CELEBRATION OF COMMUNITY
Community is the most powerful way to build hope, and the NOCC team is designing an immersive experience that will not only inform the audience but also connect and motivate them even when they cannot be physically in the same space. Using all the latest tools and techniques that online platforms can offer, attendees will move through a specially designed agenda that features both on and off-screen experiences. From inspiring general sessions to intimate small group discussions, members of the ovarian cancer community will get to engage with others like never before. Some planned features include:
- Memorable stories of courage and bravery featuring survivors and caregivers from coast-to-coast.
- Small general sessions where attendees can choose a topic of their choice, hear from a knowledgeable speaker, and take part in an interactive Q&A session
- Virtual tours of leading research and care facilities nationwide.
The entire Retreat will be broadcast on an easy-to-use and user-friendly online platform. Interaction will be further encouraged over social media and through polls, word clouds, and pop-up questions.
