Men’s Health Day
Like many events, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are sad to announce that our Men’s Health Day event will not be taking place this year. We are still strongly encouraging men over the age of 50 to get your annual PSA test done by consulting with your GP or local walk-in clinic. Testing PSA levels is an important step to determine if you may need further tests to detect prostate cancer. For more information on PSA testing or should you have questions regarding the cancellation of this years event, please reach out to us at 250-388-0214.
Country Grocer Men’s Health Day was established in 2001 with the goal of providing free PSA screenings for prostate cancer. As PSA testing is not funded in B.C. and costs $35 on average. In 2019, our Men’s Health Day tested 735 men, with 65 of these tests showing higher risk for prostate cancer.
