The Sunset Country Family Health Team (SCFHT) is proud to host Kenora’s first ever Colorectal Spring Screening event March 21st, 2017 – Drop in between the hours of 10am – 4pm. This is an open house event for the general public – you do not need a family physician.

You’ll be able to:

  • Have some free refreshments
  • Learn about colorectal cancer
  • Learn about how you can lower your chances of getting this disease through diet, exercise, and leading a healthy lifestyle
  • Learn about the different methods of screening offered in Kenora (FOBT test, cologic blood work, colonoscopy) as well as the timelines per screening method
  • Learn more about the SCFHT and our programs
  • Learn about the other work the SCFHT Integrated Cancer Screening Committee is doing
  • And if you’re between the ages of 50 – 74, we have walk-in appointments available for you to discuss with one of our healthcare professionals if you need screening. If so, you can leave with a requisition for either an FOBT kit or a cologic blood work requisition (cost associated with blood work method)
