Indiana General Assemby Passes Law to Decrease Risk of Cervical Cancer

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.”
