All IHS patients age 45 and over get screened by:
1. Screen at home with a colon cancer screening test card from SBHC. The patient will need to bring the card back to SBHC Lab for resulting. Ask a provider, nursing or lab staff for the test card. Note: This is a yearly screening.
2. Or get a colonoscopy which only has to be done every 10 years! Patients can call the nursing staff and they will be happy to put in a referral for a colonoscopy.

Colorectal cancer often has no signs or symptoms in its early stages. If found and treated soon enough, 9 out of 10 people will survive. #GetBehindCRCScreening and talk to your health care provider about which screening option is right for you: http://ow.ly/fNu850DH0hO

Every person needs a healthy supply of blood. But, not every person’s blood is exactly the same.

Human blood falls into four different blood groups: A, B, AB and O. Your blood also has what is known as an Rh factor: It either contains a certain protein or it doesn’t. (This is the positive [+] or negative [-] after your blood type.) The possible combinations create eight different blood types: A+, A-, B+, B-, AB+, AB-, O+ and O-.

Do you know your blood type?

If not, that's ok! It's easy to find out - just donate with us! We'll tell you after you donate. And, whatever your type, every donor is needed and every donation transforms lives—including your own! Make an appointment now to #GiveBlood, learn your blood type, and save a life: donors.vitalant.org
