Thank you for your interest in hosting a MAN VAN clinic. For many men, a trip to the Van is the first step to becoming more proactive about their health. Sponsoring a clinic for your company, organization, or community is a great way to partner with Calgary’s Prostate Cancer Centre and raise awareness about the importance of early prostate cancer detection and overall health.
MAN VAN clinics typically run for three hours. During this time, we visit with up to 60 men. PSA blood tests are available for men ages 40 to 80. There is also the option to add on the “Know Your Numbers” Men’s Health clinic, which provides blood pressure, blood sugar, stress check, and waist circumference measurements to men over 18 years of age. A visit usually takes less than ten minutes and there is no appointment necessary.
The Van is operated by a driver, host, and up to four clinical staff responsible for drawing blood, administering health measurements, and providing take-home educational materials.
