Currently we have heard from cervical cancer patients and survivors from Kentucky and Ohio who will be joining us and I thought it might be important to reach out and share what our Cervivor School will be all about! The best way I can think to do this is a little Q&A.
Q. Why should I attend Cervivor School?
A. Cervivor School is such an amazing experience! It was such an impactful experience for me and I chronicled it on a previous blog post which I'd love for you to read! Check it out here. There is even a great recap video you can view here.
Q. Who should attend Cervivor School?
A. Cervical cancer patients/survivors, women with HPV, clinicians, social workers, patient navigators.
Q. I only have HPV, why should I attend?
A. Cervivor School is full of women who have been right where you are. HPV is scary and you should be sure to educate your self about its risks! A key element in Cervivor School is providing you with the latest news in HPV and cervical cancer prevention and treatment.
Q. I really don't want to speak in front of people, do I have to talk?
A. There will be a variety of events throughout the day and you will have opportunities to talk, however, no one is going to force you to talk. Each Cervivor experiences Cervivor School in a unique, but impactful, way.
Q. What do you expect of me after Cervivor School?
A. This answer comes straight from the Cervivor website: We know that everyone’s level of involvement will be different – Some of you will be advocates among your friends and family; others of you will extend out to your social networks and local communities; then there will be the handful of you, that like Tamika, will want to change the global impact of cervical cancer, thinking about women across the United States, as well as women in countries around the world. No matter how much or to what extend you want to get involved, we believe that each of you – each woman, survivor, advocate – has value and purpose in our collective commitment to ensuring that others do not suffer or die from cervical cancer.
Q. Where can I sign up?
A. Sign up here! We would love to have you!
