Each session will begin with an educational session on breast health followed by a physical examination for all who make themselves available.
Screenings were conducted at the Delices Health Centre last Thursday and, like all the other Health Centres in the La Plaine Health District, the venue was packed to capacity. This was the final physical screening conducted by the Dominica Cancer Society in this district.
The Dominica Cancer Society Inc. would like to thank the Family Nurse practitioner (FNP), Missie Lander, and rest of the La Plaine Health Team for accepting the Society’s invitation to carry out this physical screening in their Communities. The fact that about 10 percent of those who made themselves available for screening needed referral raises concern for the state of Cancer in the general population.
The carded dates and Health Centres for the Portsmouth Health District are as follows:
Anse de Mai February 02
Dos Dane February 03
Dublanc February 10
Portsmouth February 12
Thibaud February 17
Veille Case February 19
Cottage February 26
Dr Callender and her Ross group “Espwa Dominique” are expected to assist with the screening of the large turn out expected at the various Health Centres in the Portsmouth District.
