Apr. 12 7:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. Colon Cancer screening at the Flagstaff Aquaplex.“Nolan the Colon”, an inflatable, interactive mega-colon standing more than 20 feet long, 12 feet high and 10 feet wide, will be featured at the fifth annual Small Business Health Fair from 7 am to 1pm, Friday, April 12 at the Flagstaff Aquaplex at 1702 N. 4th Street. The Health Fair is free to attendees and sponsored by North Country HealthCare, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona, and Mountain Heart.
Colon cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in the U.S., but it is also one of the most easily detected, preventable and treatable forms of cancer. Large enough to walk through, Nolan the Colon shows how a normal healthy colon can change over time into precancerous polyps that may become colorectal cancer.
The FIT at Fifty HealthCheck Program will be hosting “Nolan the Colon” thanks to the Central Arizona Chapter of the Colon Cancer Alliance. Nolan has been well received at his other engagements in Arizona. The FIT at Fifty HealthCheck Program will be on sight to promote their FREE colon cancer screening program for uninsured men and women, and will also be available to answer any questions community members have about colorectal cancer.
Also, the Well Woman HealthCheck Program will be offering FREE breast and cervical cancer screening to uninsured women. These services include free mammography, clinical breast exams, and Pap testing. This is made possible utilizing North Country HealthCare’s mobile medical unit as well as the Assured Imaging mobile mammography unit. Women with insurance are also able to schedule a mammogram at the event. Get screened and enjoy the Small Business Health Fair in one place.
