Loisa is a big advocate of self love, but she’s also looking out for others by using her voice to advocate for all women to have access to the Pap test. Join Louisa in taking charge of your own reproductive health, it’s the best way to give your body some love.

“I am such a huge believer in being the healthiest version of ourselves possible. How can that be accomplished if we don’t have access to screenings/tests that keep us regulated, healthy, and could potentially save our lives?

To be specific, proposed changes to the guidelines could eliminate the Pap smear from our routine wellness screenings. The Pap smear is absolutely necessary for the well being of women from every walk of life! This particular test has put my mind at ease several times throughout my adult life when I was afraid something could be wrong internally. Knowing that having this test as part of my regular screening could potentially save my life or detect any abnormalities that could be ruining my reproductive system makes it very important to me – and it should be important to you, too!”

As I reflect on the question above, I realize that I, like many women, don’t know enough about who is making decisions that affect my health and body. This realization brought to light a passion within me – I want to use my platform to empower and position myself and other women to be able to have more visibility in the decisions being made regarding our bodies. This starts with understanding how we can influence said decisions. I am such a huge believer in being the healthiest version of ourselves possible.
