Tuesday, February 26, 2013 at 2:45pm to 3:45pm
Schapiro Hall, Room 129 24 Hopkins Hall Dr, Williamstown, MA 01267
Cervical cancer is largely preventable, yet it remains the most common cancer among Nicaraguan women. Edwards will present the natural history of this disease to highlight potential points of intervention and reflect on the social, political and economic factors that help explain why cervical cancer mortality rates are 12-times higher in Nicaragua than in the United States. Kaye Edwards, Class of 1955 Visiting Professor of International Studies.
