Chambers County Students to Lead in Cervical Cancer Elimination
October 11, 2023
The Chambers County School District is excited to be taking a forefront in leadership to build a multi-channel communication campaign to help eliminate cervical cancer across the district. CCSD Superintendent, Dr. Casey Chambley is thrilled to see the District’s partnership with Operation Wipe Out continue to grow with this outreach to support Chambers County. This effort of cooperation resulted with a grant of funding secured from the National Cancer Institute.
The school district collaborated with Operation Wipe Out partners to secure the grant to provide education and leadership training for our health science students in the career technical program. Students in the health sciences curriculum will be empowered to lead efforts to raise awareness for local efforts to eliminate cervical cancer here in Chambers County. The team of local stakeholders below met for nearly three hours today to plan next steps for the CCSD efforts.
