Editor's Notes

  • I always like starting any talk with a case presentation. I thought it would be fitting to describe Henrietta Lacks and how she presented at time of diagnosis. I will then contrast her case to a recent case, 70yrs later. I will then describe her legacy in honor of her today and then we will dive into the finer details on cervical cancer screening, prevention, and the impact on racially/ethnically/economically diverse groups.
    Her story has been immortalized in a best selling book by Rebecca Skloot and a movie starring Oprah. Her story also paved the way for improved ethics and consents for human research subjects, she has received several awards/honors in her memory, and her family…
  • So what is driving these disparities That we see globally and here in our own country within our diverse communities….
    So lets dive in and see how we can prevent and hopefully eradicate cervix cancer!
  • Adding up incidence of all these cancers equals approx. 40K cancers yearly that are caused by HPV!!
  • Data from 2019 looks similar
