September is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month. Mercy Medical Center, in cooperation with other area sponsors, is pleased to once again offer a free prostate cancer screening event to men in our community who are uninsured, underserved or do not have a primary family physician.
The screening takes place on Wed., Sept. 19, from 4:30 to 6 p.m. at the Community Health Free Clinic, 947 14th Ave. SE in Cedar Rapids (next to the Jane Boyd Community Center). The screening is for men 40 years of age or older who are at high-risk, including African Americans, men with a family history of prostate cancer or men over the age of 50. Dinner is provided following the screening. For more information call 310-365-4673.
