Isabel Scarinci, PhD, vice chair for Global and Rural Health in the UAB Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, has been chosen to lead a workgroup charged with creating the United States cervical cancer elimination plan.

The announcement was made during the Biden Cancer Moonshot forum at the White House where leaders from across health care, government, research and other divisions came together to discuss the challenges of increasing access to cervical cancer prevention.

“I am honored with the opportunity to lend my expertise and life experiences to such an important effort,” Scarinci said. “My dedication to cervical cancer elimination is both personal and professional as I truly believe we can eliminate this cancer in my lifetime, as we have done with polio.”
