Cervical Cancer Screening for LGBTQ Women

RibbonWe know that some LGBTQ women do not utilize cervical cancer screening tests as often as heterosexual women do. Although a number of research studies have identified some of the reasons for lower screening rates among LGBTQ women, more data needs to be collected to design health interventions, programs, and services that are culturally sensitive and appropriate for ALL women, including LGBTQ.

If you identify as a LGBTQ woman and are between the age of 21 and 65, please visit our study’s website (www.CrushCervicalCancer.com) to complete a quick survey and/or sign up to participate in a brief telephone interview. Feel free to share the study’s website with any women you think might be interested, or with any LGBTQ groups. Also, if you want information postcards to distribute, please email me directly (johnsmj@musc.edu) and I can send you some in the mail.
