January is Cervical Cancer Awareness Month so we decided that this month's chat topic would be cervical cancer. Some of the topics we discussed were symptoms and diagnosis, the stigma of the disease, fertility issues, HPV and the HPV vaccine. We were pleased to have Tamika Felder, survivor and founder of Tamika and Friends and Katie Brown survivor and Director of Support and Advocacy for Lungevity share their experience with us.
We had 33 participants, 379 tweets and over 980,000 impressions. A transcript from the chat can be found here.
