Fashion Targets Cervical Cancer 2009: Oldest Medical

Fashion targets cervical cancer

The oldest medical sorority in Asia, Mu Sigma Phi Sorority of the University of the Philippines College of Medicine, celebrates its 75th anniversary via
a gala dinner and fashion, show dubbed Brilyante: The Empowered Woman, on Aug. 28 at the NBC Tent in Bonifacio Global City. The event is both a campaign for awareness on cervical cancer and other diseases caused by the human papilloma virus (HPV), and a fund-raiser for the Benefit of the Cervical Cancer Prevention (CECAP) Network Program and the Service Committee of the Sorority. Since 1934, Mu Sigma Phi’s membership has grown to over a thousand women doctors. Throughout its history, the group has pursued activities in line with its ideals of sisterhood/solidarity, dedicated service, scholastic excellence, and leadership in the fields of health. “Part of our thrust for women empowerment is our advocacy for cervical cancer awareness… We have always dedicated ourselves to championing worthwhile causes — and one of the most pressing concerns right now is the issue of cervical cancer among women,” said UP-PGH OB-Gyn Infectious Disease Specialist Dr. Angela Rodriguez-Bandola, Mu Sigma Phi Sorority ’99 and co-chair of Brilyante.
