Description

Please join us at our annual cancer screening event for the community. We will provide FREE clinical breast exams, oral, prostate, thyroid, colorectal and skin cancer screenings to the community. We will also provide health insurance counseling and registration to uninsured residents.

Why You Should Attend

"Regular screening is critical for detection and removal of precancerous growths, as well as the diagnosis of cancers at an early stage, when they are most treatable," said Dr. Kash Firozvi, medical oncologist at Washington Adventist Hospital.

In addition to the screenings, insurance coverage specialists will be on hand to provide counseling and enrollment into county, state and federal assistance programs for residents who lack health insurance. It is estimated that in Maryland, 800,000 people do not have health-care insurance. Many of these people are eligible for low-cost or free health-care coverage through medical assistance. 

Event Registration

To register for the cancer screening, call 1-800-542-5096. Walk-ins during the screening event at the hospital are welcome but limited. You do not need to register to see an insurance coverage specialist. Assistance will be available in English and Spanish.
