Bowel Cancer Awareness Program
May, 2017
The Bowelscan Program is part of a community bowel cancer awareness program supported by Australian Rotary Health. Locally it is a Community Service project of the Rotary Club of Irymple.
In 2016, through the participation of local Pharmacies, 900 kits were sold. Of these kits, 9% of those tested were positive and assisted local clients with access to further testing and support.
Local Pharmacies across the Northern Mallee and South-Western NSW purchased kits from the Rotary Club and sold them to participating Customers. In 2017 we are extending our region to include Renmark.
This year the program will take place during May, 2017
The Club urgently needs the assistance of Club Members either assisting with administration of the program or the delivery to pharmacies or both.
Please contact the Secretary as soon as possible.
