NCCC local chapters around the country hold cervical cancer awareness events in their communities to educate about HPV and cervical cancer prevention. Chapter leaders participate in community health fairs and national conferences, host educational events at local colleges and community health centers, organize awareness walk/run events, softball tournaments, nature hikes, yoga classes, and a host of other events where they promote the importance of cervical cancer screening and early detection, HPV vaccines, and more. January is an especially busy month for local chapters, as they step up their efforts in honor of Cervical Health Awareness Month.
Check the calendar of events below to learn more about upcoming events in communities across the country.
Participate in Cervical Cancer Awareness Events
Our local chapters depend on volunteers like you to help spread the word about cervical cancer prevention in their communities. If you would like to participate or volunteer for a chapter event, check our chapter list to see if there is a NCCC chapter in your community.
If there is no chapter in your area, perhaps you would like to host your own cervical cancer awareness event in your community. You can learn more about hosting an education or fundraising event on our website, or feel free to contact us for more information.
