The Allen Digestive Health Center is providing free colorectal cancer screenings for low-income, uninsured or underinsured residents of Iowa age 50-64 who are not on Medicare.
The free colorectal cancer screenings are made possible through an $86,400 grant from the Iowa Get Screened program of the Iowa Department of Public Health. This is the third year that Allen has provided screenings through the program.
