"There is no time better than now for SGO to host a Forum on the future of cervical cancer prevention," adds Dr. Einstein. "The medical society as a whole has come to a crossroads on how to continue into the future, and SGO is taking a proactive role by leading the future of women's health on a new path."
The Forum's discussions will be captured and shared with the public in the form of a whitepaper to be published soon after the meeting. The whitepaper will detail the Forum's follow-up initiatives, as well as future research needs for attendees and key stakeholder groups working to prevent cervical cancer. The ensuing whitepaper is intended to provide a composite view of the future of cervical cancer screening, prevention and treatment. Professionals dedicated to the prevention of cervical cancer are strongly encouraged to read this summary when released.
The Society of Gynecologic Oncologists (SGO) is a national medical
specialty society for physicians trained in the comprehensive management of
women's cancers. The Society's membership, totaling more than 1230, is

cervical cancer, endometrial cancer, vulvar cancer, and vaginal cancer.
They are trained in chemotherapy and radiation therapy administration,
supportive care, and surgery in order to provide comprehensive patient
