What's New

Someone You Love: The HPV Epidemic
Monday, December 15, 7:30pm 
Studio Movie Grill City Centre, 805 Town and Country Blvd.
$11.00 General admission

Join the Houston chapter at a screening of the film, Someone You Love: The HPV Epidemic. Narrated by Vanessa Williams, this poignant documentary takes a look into the lives of five women affected by HPV. Each of these women has an intimate story to tell. For Susie, Tamika and Christine, it’s a story of survivorship heartbreak, pain and triumph. For the Forbes’ family, it’s about coping with the loss of their daughter Kristen and trying to prevent it from happening to others like her. Others like Kelly, who at 31 years began her cancer journey. Reserve your ticket today.

In July, the Houston chapter sponsored an afternoon tea and book signing with guest Dr. Lois Ramondetta, author of The Light Within, true story of a friendship Dr. Ramondetta developed with a patient when she was a young gynecologic oncology fellow.

In September, the chapter participated in the See, Test & Treat event along with volunteers from the Ft. Worth chapter. At the event, sponsored by the College of American Pathologists, women receive a pelvic and breast exam, a Pap test with same-day results, a mammogram with same-day or prompt results and connection to follow-up care.
