Cervical cancer is almost 100% preventable with Pap tests and proper follow up, however, many women in our growing community don’t have a primary care provider to do this simple test. We are lucky to have this initiative for women in our local community to ensure they keep their Pap Screening up to date. I’m excited to be a part of the Pap-a-Palooza team. It’s a fast and simple test and we are here for you.
We strive to be the healthiest community in Canada.
We, as a community, will co-design an innovative and equitable system that anticipates, meets, and exceeds the needs of all our people.
