The Winchester District Memorial Hospital, TELUS Ride For Dad, Nation Valley ATV Club and the Black Walnut Prostate Cancer Support Group has once again partnered together to host their Third Annual Prostate Cancer Awareness Clinic.

Along with a brief information session, there will be an opportunity for participants to receive a free PSA test on-site (tests normally cost $30-$50). PSA stands for Prostate-Specific-Antigen and is one of the simplest and quickest ways to help detect prostate cancer early in men.

Prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in Canadian men. It generally affects men over 40. Successful treatment depends on early detection. In the longer term, research into improved diagnosis, treatment and prevention will further improve our capacity to deal with this disease.

What: Short information session on prostate cancer and early detection (session will be reoccur between 8 am – 10 am) with optional on-site free PSA test.
When: Saturday, August 12, 2017.
Where: Winchester District Memorial Hospital, 566 Louise St., Winchester, 8 am –10 am. Free parking for clinic attendees.
Who should attend: Men over the age of 40 (attendees should bring their Health Card).
