Education & Outreach
The Hicks Foundation believes that with education and access to health care all women can prevent cervical cancer. Cervical cancer is virtually 100% preventable, yet many women lack the education tools and prevention services to protect against this deadly disease. We strive to raise awareness about the Human Papillomavirus (HPV) and its link to cervical cancer.
Partnerships are crucial to our work as we strive to educate Vermonters about HPV and cervical cancer. In the past three years, we have collaborated with many local, statewide, national, and international organizations including Women in Government, the global Pearl of Wisdom Campaign, The Vermont Department of Health, the Vermont Girl Scouts, Vermonters Taking Action Against Cancer – Cervical Cancer workgroup, Vermont State legislators, and many local health care professionals and service providers.
