“Project Give Hope is a tangible way to help women who have limited access to even basic GYN care,” said Paul MacKoul, MD. “By supporting this cause, we are able to extend our commitment to innovative solutions in GYN care. We are proud to lead the way for other supporters of Ms. Jackson’s mission. She has accomplished so much in a short amount of time to make this effort possible, and we encourage other like-minded medical professionals to learn more about the project and make it a reality.”

January is Cervical Health Awareness Month.

Cervical cancer is preventable, and highly treatable if caught early. While the National Cervical Cancer Coalition works throughout the year to help women take advantage of screenings that can detect early signs of cervical dysplasia (abnormal cell growth) or cancer, January is designated as Cervical Health Awareness Month.

Over the last 30 years, the cervical cancer death rate has gone down by more than 50 percent. Annual Well Woman visits are to be credited as increased use of screening tests during these exams finds changes in the cervix, known as dysplasia, before cancer develops, or can find cervical cancer early while it has a higher cure rate.
