“Being healthy and surrounded by love are two things I never take for granted. I feel so extremely thankful my mom taught me to prioritize and work on my physical health. And I want to remind you how valuable and worthy this is. Also, I believe in the importance of preventive care as it helps us live longer and healthier lives and avoid life-threatening diseases. So, I appreciate that health screenings like Pap and HPV can be available to all women.

We need to come together as a community and have a voice in the health guidelines to protect and improve our lives. For the health of all women, the Pap and HPV tests should remain a part of our routine wellness screening.”
