A Goldsmiths, University of London graduate has received a grant of $60,000 (£38,820) to build on her work engaging with, and empowering, Haitian women with breast cancer to communicate with their communities about the disease. Changing governments, years of earthquake recovery, and a lack of both resources and expertise mean that thousands of people, notably […]
