The ManVan

Canada’s first and only mobile men’s health clinic, offering free PSA (Prostate Specific Antigen) blood testing for men aged 40-80 is coming to canolaPALOOZA. One in seven men in Alberta will be affected by prostate cancer. When detected early it is very treatable. A PSA blood test from your family doctor or a 10 minute trip to the MAN VAN can aid in early detection.

Get your PSA test dome and canolaPALOOZA and you will be entered to win this canvas print courtesy of Dr. George Clayton (talk to George at the Soil Conservation learning station)
