The South Asian Health Centre will be running a six-week clinic aimed at increasing awareness on the importance of Pap tests in the South Asian community.
The health centre, located at 6830 King George Blvd., is a partnership between the Surrey-North Delta Division of Family Practice, Fraser Health and local family physicians and will hold the clinic on May 15, May 22, May 29, June 5, June 12 and June 19 from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
