Mobile prostate cancer testing Man Van makes its way to Ponoka

“Don’t worry guys, it’s a blood test, not a glove test.” 

Ponoka men over 40 will be able to take a free Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) test through a mobile testing unit called the Man Van. The event is hosted by the Ponoka Elks and is set for Saturday, March 7 at the Elks Hall. Nurses with the Prostate Cancer Centre will use the mobile unit to do a simple blood test, called a PSA test, to check if levels warrant further testing, explained Linda MacNaughton, director of the Man Van program for the centre.
