Global Activism: Peace Care

Peace Care is an NGO that works on global health issues. Andrew Dykens, Peace Care executive director, is a family physician at the University of Illinois-Chicago. He’s just back from Senegal and will tell us about how his group brings ovarian cancer awareness, screenings and treatment to women in Senegal. Ovarian cancer is the number one cancer-killer of women in that country. We’ll also speak with Tess Komarek, a peace corps volunteer, who’s helping Peace Care, on-the-ground, in Senegal.
