The annual Tammy Walker Cancer Center free prostate cancer screening clinic will be held from 8 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Saturday at the Tammy Walker Cancer Center, 511 Santa Fe, Salina.
The screening is open to all men between the ages of 50 and 75. Men age 40 and older at a heightened risk, such as African-Americans and those with a family history of the disease, are also welcome to participate in the clinic.
Patients will receive a prostate-specific antigen blood test and prostate physical performed by a physician free of charge. Results from the blood test will be mailed to patients and their primary care physicians.
Appointments are required and can be made by calling Linda Hinnenkamp at the Tammy Walker Cancer Center at (785) 452-4848. While the clinic is free, space is limited.
The special clinic is underwritten by a generous donation from Mark and Jane Berkley. Sponsors for the event include the Tammy Walker Cancer Center, Salina Regional Health Center, Midwest Cancer Alliance, Salina Urology Associates and Salina Masonic Lodge No. 60.
