The Rotary Club of Cowra will be holding its annual Bowel Scan Screening Programme in June.

The initiative is designed to highlight the importance of regular bowel scan testing in the community and to make test kits available at an affordable price to encourage participation.

It is a simple home test, not requiring any special dietary requirements. Simply drop the prepaid envelope in the post. You will receive your results by mail with a copy to your nominated G.P.

This a common sense, preventative health measure and is a must for all over 40, both men and women. Confidentiality is assured.

Over 200 test kits were distributed By Rotary in Cowra last year, with several positive results.

One in 12 Australians will develop Bowel cancer during their lifetime, but it is a treatable disease if detected early.

As a result of Covid-19 restrictions your friendly Rotarian faces will not be manning the usual table in the arcade this year, however the Rotary Test Kits will still be available from Bendigo Bank, 93 Kendal St Cowra from Monday - Friday between 9.00am and 5.00 pm for the month of June. Cost $20 per kit.

The Rotary Club of Cowra would like to thank the Bendigo Bank, Cowra for assisting Rotary in this Community Health Programme.
