Who better than Caroline, who has two degrees in public health, to school us on the importance of the Pap test? In her own words: “Let’s talk women’s health…”

“As you may know, my background resides in public health. I studied public health mainly because I was interested in how preventable measures can protect people from disease. We are fortunate to have so many preventable measures and screenings available to us- one being the Pap test, which leads the fight against cervical cancer. Women’s health is something that doesn’t get talked about enough, but before the introduction of the Pap test, cervical cancer was the #1 cancer-related killer of women. Now, it’s #14, showing just how impactful this test has been. However, proposed changes could eliminate the test, which would be detrimental to many women. I think it’s important for women to have a voice in health guidelines that impact our bodies.”
