Partners in Wellness cancer screening is free to financially qualified uninsured or under-insured individuals. Screening tests for prostate, colorectal, breast and cervical cancer are offered. The goal of the program is to reduce the burden of cancer in Louisiana through early detection and prevention.  Partners in Wellness aims to promote good health through routine screening exams and education.
