Caddo Parish Parks and Recreation has a commitment to provide health and wellness resources and opportunities to all populations here in Caddo Parish. We highlight a health awareness topic each month to provide educational and nutritional information to keep the community informed about ways to stay fit and healthy.
This month we are spotlighting cervical cancer.
Cervical Cancer Awareness
The United States Congress designated January as Cervical Health Awareness Month. Each year almost 13,000 women in the United States are diagnosed with cervical cancer, but the disease is virtually always preventable with vaccination and suitable screening (Pap and HPV tests).
