Prostate cancer affects 1 in 6 men. Early detection could save lives. Holy Spirit Health System and Urology of Central Pennsylvania, Inc. are partnering with ZERO, the Project to End Prostate Cancer, to provide free prostate screenings on Wednesday, September 26. The free DRE and PSA screenings will be provided in a private exam room in a specially converted bus. Men can take advantage of these free screenings from 8 to 11 a.m. at the Holy Spirit Camp Hill Center, 875 Poplar Church Road, Camp Hill, and from 1 to 4 p.m. at Target, 246 Westminster Drive, Carlisle. This screening is for men who are 40 years and older or any man who has a family history of prostate cancer. The screenings take about 10 minutes and no appointment is needed.

Physicians from Urology of Central Pennsylvania will perform the exams and staff from Holy Spirit Hospital will draw the blood for the PSA screening.
