Keynote Speaker
Tamika Felder is an award-winning television producer and host, international speaker, author and patient advocate for cervical cancer prevention. After a diagnosis of advanced cervical cancer in 2001 at the age of 25, Tamika decided to use her experience and her voice to help educate other women about ways to prevent cervical cancer. She is a 17-year cervical cancer survivor or as she says, "Cervivor". She is the Chief Visionary at Cervivor - a nonprofit dedicated to cervical cancer advocacy and support. Tamika is the author of Seriously, What Are You Waiting For? 13 Actions To Ignite Your Life & Achieve The Ultimate Comeback. She is currently working on a documentary film about the global cervical cancer burden, the women living with it and the vaccine to prevent it.
