Passavant and Simmons Cancer Institute at SIU Partner for Screen Time


Passavant Area Hospital and Simmons Cancer Institute at SIU Medicine are partnering to offer Screen Time, a free community skin cancer screening, 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, April 27, in the Specialty Clinic at Passavant.

Screen Time features skin cancer screenings by the dermatology team from the Simmons Cancer Institute at SIU. A short consent form is required for the screening.

“Prevention, awareness and education are important parts of the care we offer,” said Aziz Khan, M.D., executive director of SCI and chief of hematology oncology for SIU Medicine. “Diagnosing a pre-cancerous condition or cancer at an early stage is a positive step.”

In addition to the screenings, there will be information on diet and cancer, free home radon test kits and colorectal cancers screening kits and healthy food samples. 

To schedule a screening appointment, call 479-5800.

Funding for Screen Time is provided by the Simmons Cancer Institute at SIU and the Passavant Area Hospital Foundation.
