SciMetrika Abstract Accepted for Poster Presentation at 25th Anniverary Congress on Women's Health
March 7 - Congratulations to Yvonne Wasilewski, Jenny Patterson, and Donna Shaw, who recently had their abstract for a poster presentation accepted by the 25th Anniversary Congress on Women’s Health, April 28-30 in Washington, D.C.
The poster entitled, “Evaluation of the Inside Knowledge: Get the Facts About Gynecologic Cancer Campaign,” describes the following study objectives: (1) To train and facilitate National Comprehensive Cancer Control Program grantees in conduct of educational sessions to educate the public and providers about gynecologic cancers; and (2) To evaluate the impact of sessions on public and providers’ awareness and knowledge of gynecologic cancer signs, symptoms and risk factors.
The sessions contributed to a statistically significant increase in the public and providers’ awareness/knowledge scores related to gynecologic cancer. These results suggest that grantees are valuable partners in helping CDC disseminate critical information, messages and materials about gynecologic cancers to the public and providers.
