ETMC Offering Free Prostate Screenings

East Texas men can get screened for prostate cancer without having to pay a dime.  Starting today, ETMC is offering free screenings for the month of June.  The test is simple.  Doctors draw blood and test a man's PSA levels. Doctors say there's a more than 90 percent chance of recovery if prostate cancer is caught early.

The free screenings are being held the entire month of June at the following sites: Athens, Carthage, Cedar Creek Lake, Clarksville, Crockett, Fairfield, Gilmer, Jacksonville, Mt. Vernon, Pittsburg, Quitman, Rusk, Trinity and Tyler.

You have to have an appointment. You can call ETMC HealtFirst from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. The number to call is 1-800-850-7050.
