Management has directed that all members of staff should fully participate in the University of Lagos 2018 Staff Medical Screening (SMS).
The screening commenced on Thursday, 16th August 2018 with scheduling on a departmental basis.
For females who are 35 years and above, screening will include breast and cervical cancer screening.
Males who are 45 years and above will undergo prostate cancer screening.
Staff within these age brackets should avoid sexual intercourse at least 24hrs before the screening day, as this may affect the test result.
