International Women`s Day Celebration

International Women`s Day

This weekend, TACAM celebrated the International Women’s Day with a program that includes Elif Yilmaz’s exhibit of paintings and a documentary on the human papillovirus (HPV).

The program started with a brief introduction of Elif Yilmaz who spoke about her approach and methods in painting. She talked about the story of Sarikiz who inspired her for her amazing blonde girl painting.

Next, attendees watched the inspiring stories of women who had HPV and cervical cancer in a documentary entitled Someone You Love. Following the documentary, the attendees had the opportunity to ask questions to Nilufer Esen, our past president and current secretary, who was a medical doctor in Turkey before moving to US.

We would like to thank Elif Yilmaz for sharing her work with us as well as everyone who attended this event.
