Conquering Cervical Cancer Worldwide
October 3, 2017 @ 3:00 pm - 4:15 pm
American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network (ACS CAN)
3:00 PM – 4:15 PM
Rayburn House Office Building 2045
Please join the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network (ACS CAN) for a thought-provoking panel discussion with health experts on the global burden of cervical cancer and the U.S. government’s role in ending cervical cancer deaths.
Each year, an estimated 528,000 women develop cervical cancer, and 266,000 women die from it. By integrating cervical cancer prevention, screening and treatment services into existing U.S. global health initiatives, we can eliminate deaths from cervical cancer worldwide in our lifetime.
