Ladies! Please schedule your pap smear screening regularly and remember to remind your friends to do the same. Early detection of cervical cancer is the difference between living and dying. Full disclosure: Many of us on our team haven’t kept up with regular mammogram or pap smear. we welcome gentle reminders.
An article in The New York Times, “Wider Racial Gap Found in Cervical Cancer Deaths.” highlights the importance of this topic.
