Cervical Cancer Education

The Cervical Cancer Education Program (CCEP) focuses on raising awareness of cervical cancer prevention and is designed for female high school students. ACSG Health Educator conducts a 30-minute presentation on cervical cancer with awareness and prevention as key messages in order to have a positive influence on the young women.  The presentation incorporates the link between cervical cancer and exposure to the Human Papillomavirus (HPV) and includes information on the signs & symptoms, staging and screening.

 

A separate awareness brochure on cervical cancer with content for older women (+18 years old) is distributed among the students after each session as take-away material that can help share the information with friends and family.
