        Professor Ian Frazer is president of Cancer Council Australia, the Chairman of the Australian Cancer Research Foundation’s Medical Research Advisory Committee and advises the World Health Organisation and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation on papillomavirus vaccines. He won the 2005 CSIRO Eureka Prize for Leadership in Science. Vaccines are arguably the single most effective public health intervention after clean water, in terms of global reduction in disease burden. How well do they work, and what can we do to encourage their more effective use? Which new vaccines are we likely to develop, and why are vaccines against some diseases so hard to produce? Are concerns about vaccine safety realistic, and what should we do about them? Professor Frazer talks through these issues and more in this detailed talk given at Embiggen Books.

                    from Just So You Know Added

                    “I know all girls say this, but pink IS my favorite color.” Fifty-two year old Kathy “learned to be a survivor” when she was diagnosed with Stage 1 cervical cancer in 1995. An early childhood teacher by profession, she has two children, Joshua and Megan and descends from Russian ancestry. Her daughter was her main supporter as she went through many “really nasty” treatments, none of which helped her to completely rid herself of her cancer. After going to MD Anderson, she is now cancer-free and has learned to find happiness in every day. “Everything brings me great joy now…just living each day is so important and not thinking about tomorrow so much.”

                      from Immigrant Health Initiative Added 21 0 0

                      Immigrant women with low levels of acculturation and less education are at the highest risk for cervical cancer. Latina and Korean women in particular face higher cervical cancer risk than other women in the U.S. Searching for the best way to convey health information, a multidisciplinary USC team empirically tested the efficacy of different communication methods for a greater and more sustained impact on knowledge, attitudes and prevention behavior. Two short films were made, both containing the same information regarding cervical cancer prevention, detection and treatment - one in a traditional non-narrative approach featuring doctors, patients, facts and figures; the other in a narrative approach through a family's conversation. At this panel event, researchers Lourdes Baezconde-Garbanati, Doe Mayer and Sheila Murphy presented a screening and discussion of both films followed by a presentation of the project's preliminary findings.
