Cervical Cancer Awareness Month
Cervical Cancer Awareness Month is an annual observance held throughout the month of January. It is intended to raise awareness of cervical cancer and to educate about its cause, prevention, diagnosis, treatment, survivorship and cure. In 2014, more than 12,500 people were diagnosed with cervical cancer (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention [CDC], 2017). January is also an opportunity to support those affected by cervical cancer.
