Prof Groesbeck Parham has devoted his professional life to improving the lives of the world's poor through efforts to reduce inequalities in health care by increasing opportunities for training, access to service, and through implementation research. He earned his B.S. from Oberlin College and M.D. from the University of Alabama at Birmingham. He is professor of gynecologic oncology at the University of North Carolina. Chapel Hill. Dr. Parham founded the Cervical Cancer Prevention Program in Zambia, where he has lived since 2005. As a leader in combating women's cancers in resource-constrained global environments, he developed an innovative system for cervical cancer screening in which trained nurses use simple household vinegar and a digital camera. Adopted by the Zambian Ministry of Health in 2015, the screening program has been scaled across the nation, accessed by over 1 million Zambian women, and recently leveraged to create a form of low-cost automated cervical cancer screening based on machine learning. He also serves as the ‘Clinical Expert for the Cervical Cancer Elimination Initiative' in the Office of the Director General of the World Health Organization.
