Cervical Cancer Awareness Month 2021

January marks Cervical Cancer Awareness Month, an annual campaign that raises for those affected by cervical cancer.  In the U.S., American Indian women are 2 times more likely to develop cervical cancer than white women.  Nationwide, the cervical cancer death rate dropped significantly with the increased use of the Pap test.  This month we ask that you join us in raising awareness for all women who may be touched by cervical cancer.
