A PAP Clinic for Cervical Cancer Screening is being held on Wednesday, March 21 from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. 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 tests. If it’s time for your Pap or you’re overdue, please don’t leave it any longer; 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 B.C. 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.
