Walk with a Doc: The Importance of Cancer Screenings
Breast, colon, lung, skin, cervical and prostate cancers claim many lives each year but earlier detection through cancer screenings and better treatment options can help those numbers go down. However, concerns about COVID-19 have caused many people to put off their annual screenings. Experts nationally fear a rise in later stage cancer diagnoses as a result of the pandemic. It’s important to remember that the earlier the diagnosis, the better the outcome and that there are options available for safe cancer screenings.
Dr. Moldrem will discuss screening guidelines for breast, colon, lung, skin, cervical and prostate cancer and why it’s important to maintain your screening schedule.
The mall is located at 7875 Montgomery Road. Walkers will meet at The Jewish Hospital’s Walk with a Doc booth located in front of Anthropologie near Nordstrom’s inside entrance. New walkers get a free t-shirt and a pedometer to log their steps. Walkers should bring their own masks. If you don’t have one, we will provide you with a mask and we will be sure to maintain social distancing during the talk and the walk.
The program is free and does not require pre-registration.
