Rachel took us out of our comfort zone to study barriers to cervical cancer screening in rural, mountainous Central America and is the lead author in a paper published in the Journal of Rural and Remote Health.
Although cervical cancer screening exists in rural Honduras, misconceptions and gaps in knowledge and access abound, along with poor availability of testing results. With our Honduran community health partners we are working to make a change.
The VCU GH2DP team will be back in Honduras the first week of June 2017.
