Indiana General Assemby Passes Law to Decrease Risk of Cervical Cancer

Play

The Indiana General Assembly this year passed a bill aimed at reducing deaths from cervical cancer among Hoosier women. Representative Sharon Negele of Indianapolis authored the bill, which has now been signed into law.

In a press release last week, Rep. Negele said: “The disease is almost entirely preventable by receiving regular screenings, avoiding certain risk factors and getting vaccinated against HPV.”

Reporter Sarah Vaughan talks with the RN Program Manager at the Monroe County Public Health Clinic about the HPV vaccine in today’s WFHB community report.
