Handville spoke to our club with respect to the New York State Prevention
Agenda in conjunction with the New York State Department of Health Cancer Services Program contractors to promote cancer screening strategies for breast, cervical and colorectal cancers.

The goal across NYS is for municipalities and businesses to provide for and implement new paid time off or flex time policies which allow for employees to partake in this vital, early prevention screening for these types of cancers.

She emphasized the significance for early detection overall.

Free cancer screenings are provided if you are uninsured and between the ages of 40 and 64.

If you have additional questions, please contact her at [email protected] or call 315-592-0830.

The Fulton Sunrise Rotary meets every Friday at 7 a.m. at Mimi’s.
