EAST HANOVER — The East Hanover Health Department and the Roseland Board of Health will conduct a Female Cancer Screening to be held on Saturday, April 13, from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. at the Senior Citizens Center, 96 Mt. Pleasant Avenue, East Hanover.
The East Hanover Health Department has developed a comprehensive screening program based on the premise that early detection is the BEST way to fight cancer. For a $36.00 fee, a female medical doctor, Dr. Rohina Jobenputra, will do a breast exam, a PAP test to check for cervical cancer, and a rectal exam. A hemocult slide to check for hidden blood in stool will also be done.
Literature is available on a variety of health related topics. Time is provided for each participant to learn about breast self-examination and speak privately with a registered nurse.
To make an appointment, call the East Hanover Health Department at (973) 888-6035, Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
