ECaSSA Team Receives Best Poster Award at Duke Global Health Showcase

Congratulations to the entire ECaSSA Cancer Stigma team for winning the Best Graduate Student Poster award at the Duke Global Health Institute Global Health Showcase in Durham, NC on October 17, 2022.

The poster presentation was led by Judith Mwobobia, a graduate student from the Master’s of Global Health program at Duke. Judith shared details of the research exploring cancer stigma among cancer patients in Moshi Tanzania, including qualitative data from patients with cancer describing their experiences with stigma and directions for future interventions.

The ECaSSA study seeks to understand the attitudes and beliefs surrounding cancer, and how stigma affects care and treatment seeking among cancer patients in low-resourced settings.

Congratulations to Judith and the team.
