Pap-A-Palooza is a month-long cervical cancer screening event across the Northwest region. It aims to increase awareness about cervical cancer as well as increase screening opportunities for women who are due for their Pap test. This large-scale regional event and campaign helps address common barriers women experience towards regular cancer screening including limited access, limited time, and lack of awareness.
Pap-A-Palooza, as a whole, runs from April 1 to April 30, 2019. However, participating clinics and family health teams can decide what days and for how long they wish to participate during that month.
In our region, we are aiming for 30 clinics/family health teams/primary care providers to participate. Our goal is to have providers offering Pap test clinics across our region from east to west. Check out the list on this page to see a participating clinic near you, or call (807)684-7787 to find out more information.
Women between the ages of 21 and 69 years, who have ever been sexually active, should be screened for cervical cancer with a Pap test every three years. Women who have not had their Pap test within the last three years, or who have never had a Pap test, are encouraged to get up- to-date by participating in Pap-A-Palooza with a health care provider near them.
*Note - Women who are unable to attend a Pap-A-Palooza clinic during the month of April are encouraged to book a Pap test at another convenient time.
