Being a student who chooses a healthy lifestyle
Health plays an important role in our lives. In order to maintain a healthy lifestyle, students are encouraged to have a balanced diet, exercise regularly, drink fluids, reduce stress and get enough sleep. By making a change in their lifestyle can help to reap big benefits of overall health.
As we celebrate Women’s month we at Student Health Services are committed to bring awareness about Cervical screening together with Breast examination awareness to all UP students.
Why do a pap smear?
The test checks the health of your cervix. It is also checking for the human papilloma virus (HPV) that can cause changes to the cells of the cervix.
Students can access our website: https://www.up.ac.za/student-health-services for more information on the services that SHS offers.
To book for a FREE pap smear, between June and September 2021, contact Student Health Services by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to secure your appointment. Kindly note, the numbers are limited.
