Denise Uyar, gynecologic oncologist, will speak on HPV and cancer. Human papillomavirus (HPV) can cause serious health problems, including genital warts and certain cancers. Join us for a discussion on how HPV causes cancer, the signs and symptoms, prevention and treatment options.
Long acting reversible contraception (LARC) has been shown to be an effective pregnancy prevention strategy for women’s health in other communities. Could greater LARC utilization lead to better health outcomes for women and children in Milwaukee?
Join health practitioners and diverse stakeholders in women and children’s health to further our collective understanding of the science, learn about successful models of LARC implementation in other communities, and explore the best strategies for Milwaukee.

MCW’s Global Health week is November 27-December 1, 2017. It was created to:
1) Increase the visibility of faculty’s global health activities in community engagement, clinical care, education, and research.
2) Raise awareness of local and international partnerships that are addressing global health issues from neighborhoods to nations.
