Reining in Cervical Cancer

— The Highs and Lows of Adversity


Welcome to Episode 3—The Highs and Lows of Adversity!  So, we’ve talked about how our story began, screening methods, and the importance of screening women in Haiti for cervical cancer.  Today, laugh and sigh with Jean and Jo Ann as they talk about the challenges they dealt with as CapraCare and Rotary worked to get this project off the ground. Joining them are two fellow Rotarians from the Prospect/Goshen Club, Dr. Muriel Harris and Sheila Stoke.  Sheila, the CPA of the group, was and is the holder of the purse strings; Muriel, a Professor of Public Health at the University of Louisville, convinced the Club that if they found the right organization on the ground in Haiti, they could do this!
