18 May 2018

In honor of National Women's Health Week, Dr. Gregory Root, an OB/GYN at INTEGRIS Canadian Valley Hospital, explores sensitive topics in a series of short, informative videos.

Today's video focuses on cervical cancer screenings. Although cervical cancer is the most deadly female cancer worldwide, in the U.S. the death rate has declined 74 percent in the last 50 years. Why? Cervical cancer screenings. They are that important. Scroll down to the bottom of the screen to watch the video.
