Nichols Supermarket and Green Hills Market to Participate in Cancer Screening Awareness Campaign
February 11, 2011


If you are shopping at Nichols Supermarket in Liverpool or Green Hills Market in Syracuse this month you may notice store employees wearing a pin that reads, "Uninsured? Ask me about free cancer screenings." Wearing this pin is part of the Onondaga County Cancer Services Program Partnership (CSP) "Ask Me" campaign to encourage customers to ask about free cancer screenings. Customers who inquire about the pin will be given information on how to contact the program for free breast, cervical, and colorectal screenings.
 
The likelihood of women and men in the U.S. developing some form of cancer in their lifetime is astounding. In the U.S., one in three women and one in two men are likely to develop some form of cancer in their lifetime.   Regular cancer screenings are important for early detection and successful treatment. The CSP is working to spread the message about the importance of receiving regular cancer screenings.

The Onondaga County Cancer Services Program Partnership (CSP) offers free breast exams, mammograms, and Pap tests for women 40 years and older who do not have health insurance. The CSP also offers free colorectal screening for men and women 50 years and older who do not have health insurance. These services are available at private health care provider offices and at CSP program sites throughout the city of Syracuse and Onondaga County. Please call 435-3653 today to make your appointment!
