Of the thousands of Black women diagnosed with cervical cancer each year, more than 40 percent will die compared to 20 percent of white women. Why are Black women especially vulnerable?

Host Eleanor Hinton Hoytt will explore this issue with Malika Redmond and Pamela Merritt. Malika is the founder of International Black Youth Summit, vice chair of the National Women’s Health Network and a women’s health advocate. Pamela Merritt is a reproductive health advocate, member of Trust Black Women Coalition and blogger of AngryBlackBitch.com

Malika and Pamela will help us understand what Black women should know about cervical cancer, why Black girls and boys aren’t getting the HPV vaccine and why race may be a factor in cervical cancer prevention among Black women.

We want you to ask your questions and get the answers you deserve!

Call 646-381-4662 beginning at 3 p.m. EST. to ask Malika and Pamela your questions live on the air or email them prior to the show to asktheexpert@blackwomenshealth.org.
