New cervical cancer screenings and what they mean to you — a free presentation

Mar 28,2012
Just recently, the United States Preventive Services Task Force recommended that women undergo cervical cancer screening less often. Similar guidelines were supported by the American Cancer Society.

These changes have left many confused. To address the new guidelines, as well as other relevant topics in cervical cancer screenings, Michelle Berlin, MD, MPH, will give an informative presentation on Wed., April 4.

The event will take place at the Samaritan Cancer Resource Center, located at 400 NW Hickory Street in North Albany. A light dinner will be served from 6 to 6:30 p.m., followed by Berlin’s presentation with Q & A from 6:30 to 8 p.m.

Berlin practices at Oregon Health & Science University, where she specializes in OB/GYN and preventive health for women. She has conducted significant research into disease prevention for women, and she is an expert on the subject of HPV vaccination.

This informative evening will provide clear and useful health information for you and your family. Health care providers may also benefit from attending. The event is sponsored by the Samaritan Cancer Resource Center and Mid-Willamette SCREEN program.

Pre-registration is required. Seating is limited. Please call Jayne Glaser at (541) 812-5888 to register.
