Country Grocer Men’s Health Day
Stay Tuned for 2020 date!
The key component of this event is free PSA (prostate specific antigen) screening for prostate cancer. The PSA test is a simple blood test that measures the marker for this disease in which symptoms are not always present. It is recommended that men begin undergoing PSA testing at 50 years of age (earlier if there is a family history of the disease). We invite other health related parties to set up booths that offer free health assessments, consultations and educational materials. At the event, men are encouraged to implement positive lifestyle choices and to seek early and appropriate treatment for disease and injury.
Where: Tillicum Shopping Centre – 3170 Tillicum Road Victoria, BC V9A 7C5
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.
