Thank you for your interest in hosting a MAN VAN clinic. For many men, a trip to the VAN is the first step in becoming more proactive about their health. Sponsoring a clinic for your company, organization, or community is a great way to partner with Calgary Prostate Cancer Centre (PCC) 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 50 men. PSA blood tests are available for men aged 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, waist circumference measurements, and stress check depression screening to men over 18 years of age. A visit usually takes between ten and fifteen minutes and there is no appointment necessary.
The VAN is operated by a driver, host, and up to three clinical staff responsible for drawing blood, administering health measurements, and providing take-home educational materials.
