Cervical Cancer: Early Detection Saves Lives (Virtual Event)

Registration open


According to American Cancer Society estimates, there were about 13,800 new cases of invasive cervical cancer and about 4,290 women who died from cervical cancer in the United States in 2020. All women are at risk for cervical cancer, and it occurs most often in women over age 30. Screening tests and the HPV vaccine can help prevent cervical cancer. When cervical cancer is found early, it is highly treatable and associated with long survival and good quality of life.

In this webinar, a panel of experts will discuss cervical cancer screening and diagnosis, and the role of patient navigation as a way to help reduce cancer disparities among the medically underserved. In addition, participants will hear about CDC’s National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program (NBCCEDP), and how it is being implemented at the community level to provide access to timely cancer screening and diagnostic services. This event is hosted by the Duke Cancer Institute Office of Health Equity along with our community partner Nuestras Voces.
