Lila is a NCCC chapter leader in Durham, North Carolina. She is currently an undergraduate student at Duke University, studying biology with hopes to pursue medicine and women’s health. Her decision to become a chapter leader for the NCCC comes from her research of gynecological cancer. Lila is currently working as a research assistant in the Murphy Lab in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Duke University. Beyond research, she is passionate about making a difference in the Durham community through education about preventative treatments. Cervical cancer used to be one of the most dangerous cancers for women in the United States, but with screening tests, such as the Pap test and the HPV test, people who are high risk for cervical cancer can get treatment before the cancer poses a deadly risk. Prevention is one of the most crucial tools in fighting cervical cancer, and Lila and the Durham chapter team is working hard to bring this awareness and fundraising to the Durham community.
