Elsa U. Pardee Memorial Cancer Lecture

Cervical Cancer Screening in the 21st Century

Join Diane Harper, M.D., M.P.H., M.S., professor at Michigan Medicine and an internationally recognized clinical research expert in HPV associated diseases, their prevention, early detection and treatment for the prevention of cancer, as she presents a community program titled Cervical Cancer Screening in the 21st Century - Keeping up with women’s needs and preferences.

Dr. Harper will present information on how HPV infections cause cervical cancer, describe how HPV screening is superior to cytology and discuss the difference between self-screening and speculum screening.

She has been a consultant for the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) to advise on global guidelines and to set up screening and prevention operations in low and middle income countries to prevent cervical cancer.

The Elsa U. Pardee Foundation has been instrumental in developing MidMichigan’s Oncology Services Program, as well as supporting this annual lecture.
