The Foundation provides free community health screenings on a regular basis, including blood pressure checks, body fat analysis, mammograms, skin and prostate cancer screenings, and many more. Early detection is the first line of defense against cancers and other largely silent diseases such as high cholesterol.
By assessing potential risks, these screenings empower each participant to make more informed wellness decisions, invest in disease prevention, and ultimately lower their healthcare costs. The screenings we perform are also essential in order to diagnose conditions at the earliest stages when treatment is most effective and survival rates are at their highest.
The Arts In Medicine (AIM) Program
is a continuing service of the Foundation and can be found at the Watson Clinic Cancer & Research Center
. AIM enhances the lives of patients and their families as they are brought together with the area’s finest volunteer musicians, writers, craftspeople and other visual artists. AIM’s inherent purpose is to develop creative outlets that reduce stress and facilitate an environment more conducive to healing in patients that are battling cancer and other serious illnesses.
