Free Cervical Cancer Screenings From Cone Health
The American Cancer Society finds that over the past 40 years, the death rate from cervical cancer has dropped by more than half. Much of that good news can be credited to increased screening with the Pap test. That is one of the reasons Cone Health Cancer Center holds free cervical cancer screenings in the communities it serves. The next ones are:
