Kinney Drugs announces partnership with Cancer Service Program
GOUVERNEUR, N.Y. Kinney Drugs has put together an educational program to teach uninsured patients how to get free cancer screenings, the northern New York state regional chain announced Monday.
Under a partnership with the Cancer Service Program in Oneida, Herkimer and Madison counties, Kinney will have staff at eight stores on March 22 to discuss how patients can get free screenings for breast, cervical and colorectal cancer.
“The goal is to increase awareness of the free cancer screenings available to men and women who meet criteria set forth by the Cancer Service Program,” Kinney marketing manager Penny Perrone-Gray said. “We want the people in our communities to know how important it is to be screened for breast, cervical and colorectal cancer and to understand how early detection can save lives.”
