DURING JANUARY CERVICAL HEALTH AWARENESS MONTH
Women Urged to Take Action and Protect Themselves in New Year
Women ages 21 to 65 should have a Pap test at least every two years. To start the year right, we encourage women to contact their health care provider to schedule a Pap test to check for cervical cancer. This screening is a crucial part of a woman’s health care regimen, yet one that many overlook or cannot afford. “It’s important to remember that cervical cancer is a preventable disease–as long as it’s caught early enough,” says Marilyn Ringstaff, Executive Director of W.O.R.T.H.
