We ask all of our viewers on YouTube and Facebook to watch and share these animations to raise awareness of Cervical Health Awareness Month and how to prevent cervical cancer.
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) January 07, 2014
As medical organizations recognize January as Cervical Health Awareness Month, Nucleus Medical Media offers informational medical animations at no charge through social media channels to explain and promote health literacy.
According to the most recent data from the CDC, almost 12,000 women in the United States were diagnosed with cervical cancer in 2010. Though the number of deaths from cervical cancer has decreased drastically since the increased use of the Pap test beginning in the 1950s, other measures can help prevent the disease before a cancer diagnosis.
Lynn B. Barclay, the President and CEO of the National Cervical Cancer Coalition, says, “Cervical cancer is preventable through vaccines and screening tests. Making sure these tools reach the most vulnerable women is critical, of course, but so are efforts to educate women about the disease. Accurate, culturally-sensitive information and access to care are an unbeatable combination.”
With a mission to support and enhance health literacy, Nucleus offers free, informational videos about cervical health on the Nucleus Medical Media YouTube channel including the following:
- HPV: Preventing Cervical Cancer—explains how to avoid HPV and how the vaccine can prevent cervical cancer
- Cervical Cancer Symptoms—outlines the symptoms that could mean cervical cancer
- Cervical Cancer Staging—demonstrates what various stages of cervical center look like from inside the body
- Treatments for Cervical Cancer—explains options for treatment such as surgery, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy
Ron Collins, CEO and Co-founder of Nucleus Medical Media believes that the web is ideally suited to help spread health literacy information like cervical cancer prevention: “Health literacy is the first step in preventing diseases and conditions,” he says. “We ask all of our viewers on YouTube and Facebook to watch and share these animations to raise awareness of Cervical Health Awareness Month and how to prevent cervical cancer.”
If you are a nonprofit organization interested in using medical animations for community-based or faith-based health presentations on cervical health and cancer, email Nucleus at info(at)nucleusinc(dot)com with “Cervical Health Information” in the subject heading.
