Second Annual Pap-O-Rama Gives Free Screenings to Uninsured Women
FOX 47 News
Alliance Obstetrics and Gynecology is looking to help uninsured women get the preventative care they need by holding their second annual Pap-O-Rama event.
The event will be Saturday, October 19 from 9:00 a.m. to noon. Women must be uninsured, between the aged of 21-64, and not have had a pap test in the last three years.
To register, women can call 517-364-3685.
Megan Newton, Digital Media Specialist for Alliance, says the event will hopefully reach those who have been unable to have a pap test in recent years.
"Cervical cancer is unique in that it can be detected at a pre-cancer stage and treated before it truly develops into cancer," she says. "In the state of Michigan alone, over half-a-million women do not have health insurance. This means that they do not have access to affordable preventative care that is needed to identify cervical cancer at an early stage."
Alliance is located at 1560 Turf Lane in East Lansing.
