MHHC Receives Walgreens CHANGE Grant

May 27, 2015

Colorectal cancer is the third most commonly diagnosed form of cancer in the United States in both men and women. Missouri Highlands is thrilled to be chosen as the recipient of the Walgreens CHANGE Grant, which is distributed through the American Cancer Society. This grant allows us to screen all patients over age 50 for colorectal cancer using the FOBT kits for FREE. Patients can pick up the kits at any of our medical clinics and perform the test in the privacy of their own homes. Once the kit is returned, patients are asked to complete a five question multiple choice survey, after which, they can choose a FREE gift for participating. Funding may be available for transportation issues and to help pay for additional testing, if needed. Call your local Missouri Highlands clinic for more details!
