Cervical Cancer Screening Event

January 26

NARA NW’s Breast & Cervical Cancer Prevention Program will be hosting a Cervical Cancer Screening Event!

Thursday, January 26th, 2023 at both NARA NW clinical locations:

NARA NW Indian Health Clinic

According to the American Indian Cancer Foundation:

  • American Indian women are twice as likely to develop cervical cancer as compared to white women.
  • COVID-19 increased cancer burdens in our communities due to cancer screening delays.
  • A PAP test is recommended for all women from ages 21-64. All individuals who have a cervix should get screened, including transgender, gender nonconforming, and Two Spirit patients.

Patients who complete a cervical cancer screening on 1/26/2023 will receive a self-care bundle!
