Susan Peters & EMAC Founder Tewa Onasanya
Remember the #SmearIt and #GetScreened campaign that featured Kiki Omeili, Tonto Dikeh–Churchill, Sun’kanmi, Susan Peters, Lola Omotayo–Okoye, Olive Emodi, Ayo Thompson, Tayo Afolabi and Layole Oyatogun smear their makeup, encouraging us to get screened? See photos here.
Everyone was encouraged to go for a Pap Smear to raise awareness for Cervical Cancer, a 100% preventable disease that still affects women due to lack of proper knowledge.
This campaign was part of the Exquisite Magazine against Cervical Cancer (EMAC) Prevention Week that took place from January 26th, 2017 to February 4th, 2017. The team took on Cervical Cancer awareness with a purpose.
Personalities like Susan Peters, Ayo Van Elmer, Sunkanmi, Glory Edozien, Tayo Afolabi, Kemi Olawoye, Yetunde Ogunnubi among others came out to support the EMAC Convener Tewa Onasanya and her team.
Amidst food and drink, the aim of the event was shared and funds were raised for the free screening program.
On Sunday, January 29th, the entire team was at Sweet kiwi for the pop up sale. All proceeds went towards helping women get a free pap smear as promised.
The World Cancer Day on Saturday, February 4th was celebrated together with Oceanic Health. An awareness walk was held that also featured free health screening; afterwards we gave out Breast, Prostate and Cervical cancer screening vouchers.
To crown off the awareness campaign, we took on screening for a number of women at the Agege Primary Health Center on Saturday, February 11th 2017. Gifts were also given out to those that came to get screened as well as useful advice from our Doctors.
