146 women screened at annual Cervical Cancer Screening exercise

 Coordinator of Community Nursing Services – Nurse Ermine Jeffers. 

 

She was speaking with regards to the annual Cervical Cancer Screening exercise (which included free Pap Smear Screening) organized by the Community Nursing Services here on Nevis.

 

The event was held on Saturday, January 30th, 2021 at all the Health Centers across the island. 

 

This comes in light of January being observed as Cervical Cancer Awareness Month.

 

 

The observance serves as a chance to raise awareness about how women can protect themselves from Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) and Cervical Cancer. 

 

Nurse Jeffers also expressed her gratitude to those who assisted with the exercise:
