January is Cervical Cancer Awareness Month!
Two screening tests can help reduce the risk of cervical cancer or find it early: the Pap test and the HPV test. Knowledge is power! Read more about these screening options: http://bit.ly/2zMCHAX
The Wyoming Cancer Program reimburses participating healthcare providers for screening services such as colonoscopies, mammograms, and Pap tests provided to enrolled clients across the state. The screenings are paid for through funds from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program and the State of Wyoming.
The program also implements the Wyoming Cancer Plan and facilitates the work of the Wyoming Cancer Coalition. Through collaborative partnerships, the program supports the implementation of evidence-based initiatives at the clinic, community, and population levels across the cancer continuum including cancer prevention, early detection, access to treatment and supportive care for survivors. Education and outreach activities are supported by the Comprehensive Cancer Control Cooperative Agreement from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the State of Wyoming.
