January is Cervical Health Awareness Month. Have you scheduled an appointment with your gynecologist to have a cervical exam? If you haven’t, now is the time to do so. With the new year in full effect, why not make your health a priority?
The Importance of Scheduling Cervical Examinations
Genesis Women’s Health Services offers a wide range of services for you to choose from. Dr. Wilburn and staff do everything they can to make you feel comfortable throughout the exam. If you’re new to the area and want to see a gynecologist that puts her patients first, you’ll want to visit Genesis Women’s Health Services.
According to the National Cervical Cancer Coalition, “The United States Congress designated January as Cervical Health Awareness Month.” Over 13,000 women in America are diagnosed with cervical cancer each year. Vaccination and screenings help detect and prevent the disease.
Increasing Awareness for Cervical Health
There are a number of things you can do to raise awareness about cervical health. One is to promote it on social media. Encourage your friends and family members to schedule regular exams by letting them know about the positive experience you had working with Dr. Wilburn.
Another thing you can do is encourage local media to cover Cervical Health Awareness Month activities. Women’s health fair and screenings are important to promote. Having the media cover the events ensures that the turnout will be greater than expected.
Scheduling regular appointments with your gynecologist can help detect any problems you might have with your cervix. It’s important to do this so you can remain in good health. One test may not detect a problem but the next one might.
Early detection saves lives. It addresses diseases before they spread and become untreatable. If there is one thing you do in 2017, make it about your health.
Put yourself first this year. Don’t wait to schedule your next gynecological exam. Dr. Wilburn will be more than happy to assist you. Contact Genesis Women’s Health Services to schedule an appointment with the gynecologist right away.
