Being Empowered in Your Own Health: Discussing HPV, Cervical Cancer Prevention, and Other Important Health Topics

March 28, 2013 from 11:00 am-12:15 pm in Duda 210

These are the topics that seem taboo; some people are uncomfortable talking about important issues surrounding gynecological health. This is an important topic to be open and honest about—it’s your body, and you need to be in control of your health. The Women’s Studies Program is sponsoring this program for you to be an empowered advocate in your own health.

Sometimes it’s hard to feel empowered about your health, especially if you don’t know too much about it. If you want an educational and empowering session about gynecological health issues, come to this discussion. It’s about YOU taking control of YOUR HEALTH by being your own ADVOCATE.

Cal U student Alexandra Brooks and Professor Suzanne Palko collaborate to discuss the important topic of being empowered in taking charge of your body and advocating for your health.

Professor Suzanne Palko will discuss the medical importance of Pap Smears, early screenings for cervical cancer, and other issues concerning being empowered in your health. Alexandra Brooks will share a personal experience dealing with some of these issues and how she was empowered to educate others and advocate for taking control of your health.
