The Wellness Outreach Professionals with the Mobile Health Unit of the La Porte Hospital will be making stops around the community during national prostate cancer awareness month. La Porte County and Starke County will have Mobile Health Units set up in various places throughout the month of September in order to provide men’s health education and promote the importance of colorectal cancer screenings.

Take-home colorectal cancer screening kits will be available. These kits do not replace regular check-ups or the recommended colonoscopy screening at age 50 but that they can help detect warning signs of colon cancer or other conditions. Screenings kits and Mobile Health Unit visits are made possible by the Healthcare Foundation of La Porte.

Dates, times and locations of the Mobile Health Unit visits are as follows,

Starke County:
September 22 from 1:30-3 p.m. at Bailey’s Discount Center, 5900 S. Range Rd., North Judson
September 28 from 1-2:30 p.m. at Starke Hospital, 102 E Culver Rd., Knox
