A PAP clinic for cervical cancer screening is being held on Tuesday, May 8 at the Omineca Medical Clinic in Vanderhoof.  It’s not necessary for a woman to have a family doctor to attend this clinic, and a female doctor will be performing the test. If it’s time for your Pap or you’re overdue, please don’t leave it any longer.  Spring into action and call the clinic at 250-567-2201. Press ‘O’ for the operator to make an appointment.  This mini-LACE campaign is being held in an effort to reduce cervical cancer rates in BC women.  LACE stands for “Live Aware; Create Empowerment”. It aims to empower women by promoting regular Pap tests as part of a self-care routine. Go to LACECampaign.com to learn more.
