Dear Chinese women in Alberta:
Do you give your own health enough attention?
Do you know that your health is essential to the happiness of your family?
Do you know that one simple test might save your life?
Worldwide, cervical cancer is the second most common female cancer which threatens the health of women. A simple test, called a Pap test, can effectively minimize this threat. In Canada this is a free, routine test used to maintain women’s health and is received and used regularly by many women. However, for a variety of reasons, Chinese women receive this test less frequently and might result in delayed diagnosis and treatment.
If you are a Chinese woman 20+ years old, please consider participating in this project. We will provide you with detailed information about cervical cancer and the Pap test. The first step is to complete a simple questionnaire, and review the provided education materials. Afterwards, we will assist you in arranging of this test, free of charge.
If you want to know more about this project, please watch the following video.
