It is vitally important for women to get annual medical check-ups to help detect abnormal changes to their cervix to prevent cervix cancer.

That was the consensus agreed upon by panelists participating in the “Teal the Town: Cervical Cancer Awareness” virtual town hall discussion hosted by the University of Florida Health Cancer Center and the Community Outreach and Engagement (COE) Steering Committee.

January was Cervical Cancer Awareness Month and teal is the color of cervical cancer awareness. The focus of the discussion was cervical cancer screening.
