Colon Cancer Coalition
Elkhorn Logan Valley Public Health Department is proud to partner with the Colon Cancer Coalition and the Nebraska Colon Cancer Screening Program to help save lives in our service area. Each year we provide free colon cancer screening test kits (Fecal Occult Blood Test) to those in our service area. We partner with pharmacies, retail settings, libraries and other organizations to distribute nearly 400 test kits each year and follow up with kit participants on their results. Finding the signs of colon cancer early saves lives and we are committed to early detection and supplying colon cancer prevention information.
Individuals are welcome to be a part of our coalition and we invite you to join us to help encourage prevention and early detection in your town. Our colon cancer coalition health care partners include: Faith Regional Health Services, Northeast Nebraska Area Agency on Aging, St. Francis Memorial Hospital, Dinklage Medical Clinic, Oakland Mercy Hospital, and the American Cancer Society. We provide outreach and free screening kits and we encourage people to get screened for colon cancer.
