Ohio Society of Cytology


Cervical Cancer Prevention in Guatemala

Almost 8000 pap smears done

12% abnormals (most are HGSIL)

Alarmingly high rate of invasive cancer

All treated with colposcopy LEEP, or Cryo

We are looking for additional cytotechs and pathologists who might be interested in helping us continue to grow this program.

We are currently building a School for Cytology in Guatemala.

If interested, contact Dr. Anne Ruch at
