The Rapides Foundation recognizes the importance of early detection for breast, cervical and colorectal cancers. Our Cancer Screening Project offers free screenings for Central Louisiana residents who do not have health insurance.
In partnership with the Feist-Weiller Cancer Center’s Partners in Wellness Program at LSU Health Shreveport and CMAP, the Foundation supports a mobile cancer screening van that travels throughout Central Louisiana parishes to offer free screens to uninsured and Medicaid patients. People with appointments can get digital mammograms and cervical cancer screenings inside the mobile unit, which travels to communities twice a month. In addition, residents can pick up take-home colorectal cancer screening tests.
Central Louisiana residents can get screened at any location, so they are encouraged to call for an appointment now to get scheduled. For income and insurance qualifications, to request an appointment or to see a schedule of mobile unit stops in 2022, call 318-767-3027 or toll-free at 1-855-767-3027, or click the button in the left column.
