The team from the Medical Centre here on Level 3 were handing out information this month on cervical screening along with their free Pearl of Wisdom pin, the emblem of cervical cancer prevention.
This week is the Irish Family Planning Association’s (IFPA) Pearl of Wisdom campaign, promoting European Cervical Cancer Prevention Week. Over 90 women die from cervical cancer each year in Ireland.
The best way to prevent cervical cancer is by regular smear tests, which are free for all women aged 25 to 60 through CervicalCheck(www.cervicalcheck.ie). Call in or phone the IFPA Medical Clinic on Level 3 of The Square on 01 4597685 for more information or to book your next smear test.
