The Cancer Screening Project helps residents get access to free medical screenings for breast, colorectal and cervical cancers. A feature of this project is the Cancer Screening Van, a mobile digital mammography unit that travels throughout Central Louisiana. The screening van is a partnership between The Rapides Foundation, Cenla Medication Access Program (CMAP), and the Partners in Wellness Program at Feist-Weiller Cancer Center at LSU Health Shreveport.
Breast, cervical and colorectal cancer screening services are available on the mobile unit for qualified individuals.
