Written by Celina Schocken, JD, MBA, MPP   Celina and Pope Last Saturday, Pink Ribbon Red Ribbon CEO, Celina Schocken, was invited by our partner, CUAMM – Doctors with Africa, for an audience with His Holiness, Pope Francis. The Pope spoke to a large crowd of over 8,000 people about the importance of women’s and children’s health in Africa. He spoke eloquently about the need to provide health care for women. We also had a side meeting with Becton Dickinson, the International AIDS Society, CUAMM, UBS Foundation and others. CUAMM partners with Pink Ribbon Red Ribbon in Ethiopia, and performs excellent work with Ethiopian women. They are helping screen and treat women to prevent cervical cancer. We appreciate their partnership! Celina is the CEO of Pink Ribbon Red Ribbon
