UA Cancer Center
September 26, 2017

The University of Arizona Cancer Center is partnering with the Consulate of Mexico in Tucson to promote awareness of cancer, infectious diseases, women’s health, mental health and health-care access at the Binational Health Fair on Sunday, Oct. 1, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., at San Miguel High School, 6601 S. San Fernando Road, Tucson.

The event kicks off Binational Health Month, which is coordinated by federal, state and local governments, international groups, community organizations and volunteer advocates who come together to push for improved health and well-being in underserved Latino populations in the United States and Canada. The event will feature health education, including information on breast cancer, prostate cancer, colon cancer and skin cancer, and community resources, as well as assistance enrolling in insurance and obtaining preventive health screenings.
