Your input can make a difference
•a woman who has never been screened for breast or cervical or colorectal cancer, or who is overdue to be screened for one of these cancers,
•between the ages of 50 to 69,
•interested in women’s health,
•a resident of rural KFL&A or North Kingston, and
•available for 1 ½ hour?
If you answered yes to the above, then we hope you will consider participating in a discussion led by a Public Health Nurse. KFL&A Public Health and the South East Regional Cancer program would like to understand how we can encourage KFL&A women aged 50 to 69 years to be screened for breast, cervical and colorectal cancers. This project will undergo an ethical review by Queen’s University Health Sciences and Affiliated Teaching Hospitals Research Ethics Board.

Cancer screening sees what you can’t.
Through regular screening, breast, cervical and colorectal cancer can be diagnosed at an early stage. This is an important factor in treatment and cure. For more information:
