About OCRA:

Ovarian Cancer Research Alliance (OCRA) is the leading organization in the world fighting ovarian cancer from all fronts, including in the lab and on Capitol Hill, while supporting women and their families.

OCRA’s ongoing commitment to the most promising scientific research is funding discoveries, creating new treatments, and hastening desperately needed breakthroughs. We are the voice for the ovarian cancer community, working with legislators to ensure federal ovarian cancer research and education, patient safety, and access to high-quality care are protected on Capitol Hill. Our programs help women navigate their diagnosis and support patients and their families when and where they need it most.

About the Position:

The Ann Kolker Fellowship commemorates the legacy of pioneering health policy advocate Ann Kolker. Read more about Ann's legacy here.

Working directly with OCRA's Vice President of Policy, the Fellow will play an important role in working to implement a policy agenda that seeks to eliminate ovarian cancer by translating the latest scientific and observational research into concrete policy objectives. Through both grassroots and legislative advocacy and direct engagement, the Fellow will gain important insights into both health policy advocacy and patient engagement.

The selected Ann Kolker Fellow will receive professional orientation and training from seasoned professionals and gain access to political advocates and advisers with decades of experience. The Fellow will work in OCRA's Washington, DC office and routinely engage with Members of Congress and their staff along with several Federal agencies including National Institutes of Health and the National Cancer Institute, Centers for Disease Control, and Department of Health and Human Services.

The Ann Kolker Fellow will also engage with ovarian cancer survivors, caregivers, healthcare providers, and other advocates and have an opportunity to attend coalition meetings and briefings that can provide important information and allow for future collaboration.
