Cervical Health Awareness Month

The FDHA continues to raise awareness for women to protect themselves from cervical cancer and Human Papillomavirus (HPV). The National Cancer Institute states that in 2019, there were an estimated 13,170 new cases of cervical cancer in the U.S. According to the CDC, it occurs most often in women ages 30 and older from long-lasting HPV infections. HPV is a common sexually transmitted infection (STI) that half of sexually active people will get. Cervical cancer can be detected and addressed through pap smears and a vaccine is available to prevent HPV in younger age groups. We proudly partner with The Good Samaritan and the Center for Black Women’s Wellness (CBWW) to provide cervical health screenings.
