Cervical Health Awareness Month

Each year, nearly 13,000 women in the United States are diagnosed with cervical cancer. January has been designated as Cervical Health Awareness Month, and health care providers are encouraging women across the country to get screened. Cervical cancer is highly preventable with vaccination and appropriate screening (regular pap smears and HPV tests). It is important that you understand this cancer and how to prevent it; visit the Lax Women’s Health Program at 1233 Locust St., 5th Floor to consult with a physician and schedule an appointment for cervical cancer screening.
