Teacher Reflections:
 During the group interaction students engaged with each other about which tests and screenings they should have done. It appeared all women had an increased awareness of the importance of screenigns at specific times or because of specific risk factors. Women were able to identify 3 screenings they should get based upon their own race and age.
