REED CITY\u00a0\u2014\u00a0Recognizing the growing need for the\u00a0uninsured and underinsured to have access to cancer screenings, a collaborative\u00a0partnership was formed nine years ago to address the needs of this growing population. Spectrum Health Reed City Hospital, District Health Department No. 10 and The American\u00a0Cancer Society have teamed up once again for the ninth annual free cancer screening\u00a0day on Friday, Oct. 10, at the\u00a0Susan P.\u00a0Wheatlake Regional Cancer Center in Reed City. The one-day free screening is targeted to those who do not have insurance or whose\u00a0insurance does not cover screenings, are age 64 or under, and has not had a cancer\u00a0screening in at least one year. Screenings include skin cancer screening, colorectal\u00a0screening, prostate screening, pelvic exam with Pap smear, and screening\u00a0mammograms. The partnership earned the Michigan Cancer Consortium Spirit of Collaboration\u00a0honorable mention award in 2007 for their free cancer screening project. The annual\u00a0award is presented to member organizations that have done outstanding collaborative\u00a0work to significantly move comprehensive cancer control activities forward in Michigan. Free screenings are by appointment only. Please call (231) 592-0130 ext. 8659 to make\u00a0an appointment or for more information.
