FREE Prostate Cancer Screening Day September 21 - 9/5/2013

Event hosted at Harrison HealthPartners Urology clinic

BREMERTON, WA – Harrison Medical Center, together with The Doctors Clinic, is hosting a free prostate cancer screening on Saturday, September 21, 2013. Urologists will provide a free physical exam and prostate-specific antigen (PSA) blood test from 8 am to 1 pm at Harrison HealthPartners Urology in Bremerton.

Men without prior diagnosis of prostate cancer, men 55 or older or 35 or older if there is a family history of prostate cancer, and African American and Latino men age 35 or older, are all eligible for the screening.

Manas Jain, MD, of Harrison HealthPartners will be providing screenings along with Marc Mitchell, DO; Todd Garvin, MD; and Marina Cheng, MD, all of The Doctors Clinic.
