January is Cervical Health Awareness Month.
Each year, more than 13,000 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer in the United States.
This cancer is hurting communities of color, with Latinas being at a high risk of being diagnosed.
But cervical cancer is preventable.
Stopping cervical cancer for all communities means education about the causes, prevention, and treatment of HPV and cervical cancer.
