Rotary Australia Bowelscan Month

May 1, 2016, 9:00am

TAS, Australia Map

Rotary Bowelscan is the initiative of over 300 Rotary Clubs across Australia, working to reduce the number of lives lost to bowel cancer. The Rotary Community awareness program was developed in 1982 in New South Wales and now conducted by over 250 Rotary Clubs across Australia. These Clubs issued approximately 150,000 kits during their annual Colorectal Screening programs each year Since Bowelscan commenced, it is estimated that more than 1,000 people with bowel cancer and 5,000 with polyps have been detected. The programme runs during one month every year to raise the awareness of the risks of bowel cancer and to encourage Australians most at risk (those aged over 40) to take the annual test. With the support of hundreds of pharmacies throughout Australia, the programme distributes Bowelscan testing kits to local communities, giving people the opportunity to test themselves early and regularly enough to have a fighting chance at survival. Bowelscan kits are affordable, easy to use and include pathology testing by accredited pathologists. All proceeds from the kits are put back into the programme to allow it to continue to provide this valuable community service. After an absence of several years, Rotary Tasmania is participating in the 2016 Bowelscan program. Rotary-branded kits (supplied by Clinical Genomics). will be available from pharmacies throughout Tasmania for $15 during May 2016. Cancer of the bowel is the most common internal cancer to affect men and women in western society. Over 9,000 Australians will be diagnosed as having bowel cancer this year and over 4,500 will die of the disease.... See moreSee Less
