We are pleased to announce our upcoming trip in November 2022 to Mae Tao Clinic in Mae Sot, Thailand, located on the Thai-Myanmar border.
We have chosen this region because of the predominance of displaced refugees from Myanmar who have fled their country to escape war and oppression. The women are at risk for cervical cancer, due to the prevalence of the HPV virus and the lack of screening programs.
We are proud to partner with Mae Tao Clinic because they share our commitment to eradicating cervical cancer, and they are as eager to learn as we are to teach.
The clinic serves a broad range of ethnicities, including a large contingent of Karen patients, due to proximity to the Karen State of Myanmar.
The clinic was founded by Dr. Cynthia Maung, herself a refuge from Myanmar. To learn more about Dr. Cynthia and her extraordinary efforts to provide essential healthcare to the vulnerable people of her community, please visit www.maetaoclinic.org
