Jackie is studying to enter the biomedical field at Ohio State University, and as a future healthcare professional, she’s an advocate for women having right to make choices about their own well-being – that includes supporting accessing to regular Pap testing, and here’s why:

“The Pap smear, or Pap test, is a great example of how preventative healthcare can save lives. Because of the Pap, cervical cancer dropped from being the #1 killer of women to #14. However, now there are proposed guideline changes that would eliminate access to the Pap, which will put thousands of womens’ health at risk. Everyone deserves the right to protect their own bodies.”
