Papapalooza: Southern Medical Program Student initiative
May 27 at 10:00 am - 4:30 pm
Caught early, cervical cancer can be curable for most patients. And that’s why Pap tests are an important part of health care. Pap screenings are recommended, for people with a cervix between the ages of 25-69, every three years to reduce their risk of developing cervical cancer. But many face barriers to accessing this preventative test.
Pap tests help identify abnormal and possibly cancerous cells in the cervix. Undergoing routine Pap screening can decrease the risk of cervical cancer by up to 70 per cent.
On May 27, the Southern Medical Program students will join forces with Drs. Roxanne Conde, Joanna Bielby and Donna Sorensen to host the Okanagan’s first Papapalooza event at Turtle Bay Medical Clinic from 10 am to 4:30 pm. The clinic is located at 802-11850 Oceola Rd in Lake Country.
