Free Pap Screenings Will Be Offered At Participating ARH Clinics January 23-27

1/17/2017

Nearly 13,000 women in the United States are diagnosed with cervical cancer each year. The good news is cervical cancer is virtually always preventable through regular screening with Pap tests which can detect cell changes before cancer develops.

In recognition of January's Cervical Cancer Awareness Month, participating ARH Clinics in eastern Kentucky and southern West Virginia will be offering FREE pap screenings January 23-27. While walk-ins are welcome, appointments are encouraged.

Cervical cancer is caused by a common virus called HPV. A vaccine is also available that provides protection against HPV and can help prevent cervical cancer. Women who receive the HPV vaccine must remember that they should continue having regular Pap tests.

If you are age 30 or over, your healthcare provider may recommend that you have an HPV test along with your Pap.

Women participating in the free screening event will also be receiving a gift and will be entered into a drawing for a $500 gift card from the Rejuvenation Center medical spa. The gift card can be used for products and services at any of the Rejuvenation Center’s three locations in Hazard, Middlesboro or Beckley, WV.
