Councilman Paul Koretz’s office announced that Los Angeles City Hall will be illuminated in teal-colored lights Wednesday night for ovarian cancer awareness.
The pylons at the entrance to Los Angeles International Airport will also be lit that evening in teal, the nationally recognized color of ovarian cancer awareness.
For the fourth year in a row, Koretz said he and Council President Nury Martinez and Councilwoman Monica Rodriguez will recognize ovarian cancer awareness in City Council announcements, but due to COVID-19 there will be no in-person presentation.
The illumination of City Hall and LAX pylons was inspired by the work of The Ovarian Cancer Circle, which tries to educate the public about the disease, highlighting the often missed, silent symptoms and the importance of health care, Koretz’s office stated.
