Staff -Eagle Pass
Personnel at the Maverick County Hospital District were on hand at the Offices of Eliaz Maldonado, County Commissioner of Precinct 1 on Thursday where they held a conference for women on the importance of preventing cervical cancer and breast cancer. These types of illnesses have been seen prevalently in Eagle Pass and it is important that Eagle Passans receive the proper screenings and exams in order to be preventative and proactive in the early detection of these deadly conditions. Julissa Recio informed The News Gram that this information can be obtained by coming by the offices of the Maverick County Hospital District on any day of the week. People can get these exams free or if they qualify at very low prices. No price is too large when you're talking of saving a life. Recio closed by saying that these programs are vital and important and women should be well informed and should know the risks of these types of cancer.
