Fighting the Good Fight

“I was proud to play a role in the convening and launch of the Partnership to End Cervical Cancer, a coalition of more than 40 organizations with representation from major stakeholders in medicine, public policy, public health, immunization, women’s health, cancer and industry with a mission to ensure access for all women to screening and vaccination to prevent cervical cancer. The coalition lives on today and continues to make a difference for women.”
