Women's Health Day

Equal Access Birmingham will hold 3 Women's Health Days this year. UASOM students with the help of UAB OB-Gyns will provide breast exams, pelvic exams, pap smears, chlamydia and gonorrhea testing, OraQuick HIV testing and counseling, and women's health education. Patients will mostly come from local women's shelters that help us to organize the event. EAB would like to thank Cytyc and Hologic for donating ThinPrep pap smear kits, UAB Cytology for reading the pap smears, and the Alabama state lab for donating and reading the chlamydia/gonorrhea tests. If you are interested in attending one of our Women's Health Days as a patient or volunteering as a medical professional, please e-mail EAB@uasom.uab.edu.
