HCC at American Cancer Society Leadership Summit
The HCC was invited to share American Cancer Society (ACS) funded, cervical cancer advocacy work at the recent American Cancer Society Nationwide Volunteer and Staff Leadership Summit, Jan 13-16th, 2015 in Atlanta, Georgia.
Maisha Hutton chaired the Joint General Session on Global Health featuring Professor Larry Gostin, professor at Georgetown University School of Law and author of Global Health Law; and Ambassador Sally Cowal, Sr. Vice President of Global Health for the American Cancer Society and former US Ambassador to Trinidad & Tobago. During a breakout session entitled: Women’s Health as a Global Priority; the HCC also shared successes, challenges and lessons learned in building a civil society cervical cancer movement in the Caribbean.
The HCC has been a partner of the ACS since 2012 when we became grantees of the ACS Meet the Targets (see report here) Initiative aimed at supporting global civil society efforts around reaching international NCD targets. Our relationship will continue this year as we enter into our second Meet the Targets Grant.
