CANTON, Ohio (Aug. 20, 2014) – The Aultman Cancer Center and Dr. Nicole Wade of Family Medicine of Carrollton are hosting a free women’s health event Friday, Oct. 3 from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. at Aultman Carrollton.

The Aultman Women’s Wellness and Cancer Screening Day will include free breast, cervical and skin exams – including pap smears and mammograms. “Early detection is key in the fight against many diseases, including cancer,” said Erin Meek, oncology-certified nurse with the Aultman Cancer Center. “Our event offers underinsured women in the Carroll County area the opportunity to get essential screenings and take a more active role in their health.”

The Aultman Cancer Center team will also provide educational information on everything from cancer prevention to healthy eating.

Aultman Working on Wellness (WOW) representatives will be on-site, offering free blood pressure checks and a smoking cessation counselor from 8 a.m.-noon. “Smoking has been linked to cancers of the lung, kidney, bladder and cervix, while smokeless tobacco increases your risk of oral and pancreatic cancers,” Meek shared. “A certified tobacco treatment specialist will be at this wellness event, discussing the risks of tobacco use and providing information on Aultman’s free ‘Give It Up’ tobacco cessation program.”

The site of the 2014 Women’s Wellness and Cancer Screening Day is Aultman Carrollton, located at 1020 Trump Road NW in Carrollton.

Appointments are required for the free screenings and will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Please call 330-363-6281 to register.
