Free Prostate Screening This Weekend


The Prostate On-site Project screening unit will be in Payson at the Rim Country Mall July 28.

Sponsored by Star Valley RV, the free screening for uninsured men over 40 will be held in conjunction with a multi-dealer RV show in the Sears parking lot.

An appointment is required for the screening. Call (480) 964-3013.

Gene Felker, a former Arizona State University football coach and prostate cancer survivor, is a driving force behind POP, which is operated by the All Sports Foundation of Mesa.

The screening unit is a 40-foot bus bringing doctors, phlebotomists and others to administer prostate-specific antigen blood tests and digital rectal exams.

If a participant gets an abnormal reading, a visit with his personal health care provider is recommended.
