LFCHD and Pink Connection Partner for Colon Cancer Screenings

Lexington Heath Department 300LEXINGTON, Ky. (3/18/13) – Lexington-Fayette County Health Department's (LFCHD) Community Health Equity and Education Program (CHEE) was one of 10 applicants to receive a Kentucky Colon Cancer Screening Program grant that will allow the department to partner with Kentucky Pink Connection to provide colon cancer screening for eligible low-income, uninsured Fayette county residents.
 
To be eligible for screening, individuals must be age 50-64 (45 for African Americans), or under age 50 if certain risk factors are present. They must be a U.S. citizen or legal immigrant, and a Kentucky resident. Patient navigators interview potential participants to determine eligibility and to arrange screening (limited funding is available for participants requiring colonoscopies).
 
Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in Kentucky. Screening is important because colorectal cancer usually has no symptoms in its early stages, when it is easiest to treat. People age 50 or older should be screened regularly.
 
For more information about the program, call KY Pink Connection at (859) 309-1700.
