From Zambia to the US: Eliminating Cervical Cancer through the work of Groesbeck Parham, MD
Time & Location
About the Event
The Centers for Disease Control recommends one-on-one education to help increase the screening for cervical cancer in the United States. The Institute for the Advancement of Women’s Health (IAWH) is using our Saturday Morning Lounge to reach “one woman at a time” by hosting a discussion led by Groesbeck P. Parham, M.D., a professor of gynecologic oncology in the UNC-Chapel Hill OB-GYN’s Division of Global Women’s Health in Zambia. He lives and has worked in Zambia for more than a decade, and is the only gynecologic oncologist in Zambia, and one of only a handful on the continent of Africa.
Dr. Parham brings to us a life dedicated to women’s health and will talk about the epidemic of women's cancers in Africa and the relationship between food/nutrition and cancer.
IAWH adapts a holistic approach to health promotion by placing the focus of attention on a women’s ability to communicate among each other, and our roles as nurturers of our respective and diverse communities that we live. Become a part of this conversation as we rollout how you can take simple steps to increase cervical cancer screening in the network of women that make up the touchpoints of our lives.
