CCHD and KBH Salon are Encouraging People to “ASK ME!”

The Cascade City County Health Department (CCHD) is pleased to continue with the “ASK ME!” campaign. This is an exciting and different program that teams up with local businesses to increase cancer screening rates and awareness in Cascade County. When customers ask about the “ASK ME!” button employees are wearing, they will be handed a card with cancer screening information for breast, cervical, and colorectal cancer. Penny Paul, CCHD Community Health Education Specialist, is teaming with KBH Hair Salon in Great Falls for the month of January 2015, which is Cervical Cancer Awareness Month. “KBH Salon is please to be a part of this program,” says owner Erin Leocker. We believe it is important to detect cancer early as the best preventative measure. We have a captive audience to discuss women’s health when they are getting their hair done.”

The “ASK ME!” campaign is a project of the Montana Cancer Control Coalition Early Detection Team.
