Cancer Screening Awareness Regional Roadshow- Waikerie

Wednesday 23 June 2021, 2.00pm - 4.00pm

Participation in regular breast, bowel and cervical cancer screening gives you the best chance of detecting cancer early and ultimately, saving your life.

Cancer screening rates in regional areas often fall below the South Australian average, specifically in the Outback North and East, Limestone Coast, Mid North and Murray Mallee regions.

Hosted by Cancer Council SA, this session is designed to educate regional South Australians on the importance of the early detection of cancer through cancer screening.

During the session, you’ll learn about:

  • Breast, bowel and cervical cancer, and how to reduce your risk;
  • The national breast, bowel and cervical cancer screening programs;
  • How screening detects cancer early;
  • What screening tests you or your loved ones are eligible for; and
  • Where to access them locally.

All attendees receive take home information and resources to support their participation in the national screening programs.

The Screening Roadshow has been made possible by funding from Country SA PHN.
