Operation Wipe Out Leadership at White House Cervical Cancer Forum

Jan 30, 2024

On January 25, 2024, cervical cancer experts, advocates, and survivors gathered at the White House in Washington, D.C. for a Cervical Cancer Forum organized by the Biden Cancer Moonshot team. 

This event featured a wide array of representatives for both U.S.-focused cervical cancer prevention efforts and global initiatives whose efforts align with the Biden Cancer Moonshot’s two primary goals: to prevent more than 4 million cancer deaths by 2047 and to improve the experience of people who are touched by cancer.

Founding organizations of Operation Wipe Out were represented by Nancy Wright (Alabama Department of Public Health), Dr. Isabel Scarinci (University of Alabama at Birmingham), Dr. Debbie Saslow (American Cancer Society), and Dr. Heather White (TogetHER for Health), the latter moderating a panel on global cervical cancer prevention.

Operation Wipe Out would like to express its appreciation to the Biden Cancer Moonshot Initiative Team for the opportunity to play a role in this inspiring event, and to thank all participants for their contributions, both at the event and for their steadfast efforts to make cervical cancer a disease of the past.
