The East Hanover Health Department and the Roseland Board of Health will conduct a Women’s Cancer Screening from 9 a.m. through 11 a.m. on Saturday, March 12 at the Senior Citizens Center, 96 Mount Pleasant Ave., East Hanover.
The East Hanover Health Department has developed a comprehensive screening program based on the premise that early detection is the best way to fight cancer. For a $35 fee, a female medical doctor, Dr. Rohina Jobenputra, will do a breast exam, a PAP test to check for cervical cancer, and a rectal exam. A hemocult slide to check for hidden blood in stool will also be done.
Literature is available on a variety of health-related topics. Time is provided for each participant to learn about breast self-examination and speak privately with a registered nurse.
To make an appointment, call the East Hanover Health Department at (973) 428-3035, Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.
A blood drive, sponsored by New Jersey Blood Services, will be held from 11 to 5 p.m., Sunday, March 6 at the First Presbyterian Church, 99 Main St., Succasunna.
Blood donors receive free mini-medical exams on site including information about their temperature, blood pressure and hematocrit level. Eligible donors include those people at least age 16, with parental permission or consent, who weigh a minimum of 110 pounds, are in good health and meet all Food & Drug Administration and state Department of Health donor criteria. People over 75 may donate with a doctor’s note.
