Join Us On January 19, 2023 For Turquoise Thursday

January is Cervical Health Awareness Month. American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) women are nearly twice as likely to develop cervical cancer compared to White women. Cervical cancer can be prevented and is curable if found early. Turquoise Thursday is a national cervical cancer awareness campaign created by AICAF for  AI/AN communities. The aim of Turquoise Thursday is to increase awareness about the importance of cervical cancer screening and encourage all women to stay up to date on cancer screenings. We invite people of all ages to join us in raising awareness of cervical cancer in Indian country by wearing turquoise clothing and/or jewelry and sharing photos on social media using the hashtag #TurquoiseThursday. This is a national campaign on a digital platform so community members are welcome to participate from anywhere!
