The GOSH Podcast wrapped up its first season in July 2021. This upcoming September, the GOSH podcast will be launching season two!  

The GOSH Podcast, an idea from the GCI Survivorship Summit, was founded with the intention to center the patient experience and highlight the important research happening in BC. 

To celebrate the patients involved with the GOSH Podcast and commemorate this milestone, the GCI is hosting a launch event: Press Play on Patient PerspectivesThis is a virtual event on September 24, 2021 from 12 – 1pm PST. It will feature a panel with podcast guests Nancy Cleveland and Debra Walker from the first season, along with podcast co-host Nicole Keay who will be sharing their reflections on the first season of the GOSH podcast, knowledge translation, and patient engagement in gynecologic cancer research. Co-hosts Stephanie Lam and Nicole will also share their thoughts about the podcast’s success so far, as well as the impact this knowledge translation and storytelling platform has had on the community. This is an opportunity to learn from patients and hear about the impact of effective storytelling and knowledge translation. To learn about the journey of the GOSH podcast and the perspectives of gynecological cancer patients, you can register for the event here. Attendees are also encouraged to submit questions to panelists ahead of time.
