Training course on cervical cancer prevention

We are pleased to announce that AURORA training on cervical cancer prevention was held from 24th to 26th October 2012 at the Palazzo delle Stelline, Milan, Italy. Polish delegation consisted of:

* Prof. Agata Karowicz-Bilińska (Medical University)
* Anita Sikora-Szubert (Medical University)
* Magdalena Affeltowicz (Lodz City Office – Department of Health and Social Affairs) and
* Karolina Tomczyk (University of Lodz)

The training lasted three days and aimed to provide health care professionals, as well as advocacy leaders, with practical knowledge concerning: cervical cancer issues and screening programs, communication skills and advocacy (informing campaigns, lobbying). During the training both theoretical and practical knowledge was presented, including real case example on how countries/organizations try to increase society’s knowledge concerning cervical cancer. The training will be replicated in Lodz, Poland, what should have a positive impact on women’s awareness related to cervical cancer.
