Enloe High School InvenTeam
Most cervical cancer deaths occurring in developing nations are due to lack of diagnostic facilities and personnel. The Enloe High School InvenTeam seeks to approach this lack of healthcare by designing a menstrual hygiene product that can utilize naturally discharging menstrual blood (menses) to screen for cervical diseases.To adopt menses as a diagnostic medium, the team will invent a low-cost, lab-free, and easy-to-use product sufficient for collecting, sampling, and, ultimately, analyzing life-threatening diseases.
