About the Screen for Life Coach
The Screen for Life Coach is bridging vast distances across Northwestern Ontario to help make cancer screening services more accessible and convenient. On board this state-of-the-art coach, women have access to three cancer screening services: breast, cervical, and colorectal.
Women aged 50 years and older have access to all three cancer screening services and women aged 21 years and older have access to cervical cancer screening.
Breast cancer screening is performed by a Medical Radiation Technologist (MRT) using a high-quality digital mammography unit. A trained Registered Nurse conducts cervical cancer screening. Women are also able to receive a take-home ColonCancerCheck Fecal Occult Blood Test (FOBT) kit for colorectal cancer screening.
Our services are confidential and safe. Our direct digital mammography unit and staff meet all performance and quality criteria for the Canadian Association of Radiologists Mammography Accreditation Program.
It is important to know that there is no washroom on the coach. Please remember to use the washroom before you come for your appointment.
The Screen for Life Coach is wheelchair accessible.
