Mobile Health Unit Educating the Community About Colorectal Cancer Prevention
The Mobile Health Unit of La Porte Hospital will be out in the community throughout March to educate on colorectal cancer prevention during National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month. Take-home test kits will be available. Take-home colon cancer screening kits should not replace regular doctor visits, or colonoscopy screening, but are a good tool to screen for blood in the stool, which can be a symptom of colorectal cancer. The Mobile Health Unit of La Porte Hospital will be distributing the kits in various neighborhoods in La Porte and Starke counties throughout the month of March as supplies last. Information will also be available about nutrition.
The next Mobile Health Unit visits are:
9-10 a.m., Mar. 12, La Porte County Family YMCA, 901 Michigan Ave., La Porte
11 a.m. – 12:30 p.m., Mar. 12, La Porte Hospital, 1007 Lincolnway, La Porte
