Cervical cancer is the third most common type of gynecologic cancer in the United States. Since September is Gynecologic Cancer Awareness Month, we’re replaying this popular episode featuring Dr. Sumer Wallace. Dr. Wallace is a gynecologic oncologist in the UW Department of Ob-Gyn. She talks about what causes cervical cancer, how it’s treated, and why the HPV vaccine and regular screenings are important tools to help prevent cervical cancer.
If you’re interested in supporting gynecologic cancer research in Wisconsin, please join us for the 2021 Sparkle of Hope gala on Friday, September 24! Learn more about the virtual event and how to register at sparkleofhope.org.
