POP to hold prostate cancer screenings in Clifton and Safford

Prostate On-Site Project (POP), a medical mobile service, will be providing affordable prostate cancer screenings to men forty years and older or younger if a history of prostate cancer runs in the family.

What you should know: Prostate Cancer frequently presents itself without any signs or symptoms. 1 in 7 men will develop the disease in their lifetime; if detected early, the course of treatment is less evasive, and survival is nearly 100% possible!

POP – Prostate On-Site Project is scheduled to bring the mobile medical unit out for prostate cancer screenings hosted by:

Graham County Health Department on  Tuesday – June 6th, 2023, from 7:00am – 11:00am at: 820 W. Main Street, Safford, AZ 8554
