The Kenosha Community Health Center also offers access to quality health care-and screenings-for the underserved in our community. It’s our mission to level the playing field and eliminate any barriers to tests or screenings for our patients.
We often hear comments like these from KCHC patients: “I don’t have any symptoms of colorectal cancer. Are you sure I need to be screened?” Our reply: Yes! Colorectal cancer doesn’t always cause symptoms, especially when it is in the early stages. We also have patients who explain that “Colorectal cancer doesn’t run in my family.” We want to make sure that patients and residents in the Kenosha community understand that this type of cancer often occurs in families with no prior history of the disease.
