“ASK ME” Campaign Teams Up With Local Businesses Anderson Family Pharmacy and Synder Drug

Cascade City County Health Department (CCHD) is pleased to continue with the “ASK ME!” campaign during the month of March, which is also “Colon Cancer Awareness Month.” This is an exciting and different program that teams up with local businesses to increase cancer screening rates and awareness in Cascade County. The employees wear an “ASK ME!” button and provide a card with cancer screening information for breast, cervical, and colorectal cancer. It is a fun and unique way to get the word out about a very important topic: cancer screening.

Stuart Anderson, owner of Anderson Family Pharmacy, and Kurt Depner, owner of Snyder Drug are pleased to be a part of this program.  They are established businesses who have served our community for many years. Both Stuart and Kurt believe “it’s easier to prevent cancer than to treat the disease.”

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

For more information about the “ASK ME” campaign, please call Penny Paul, CCHD Community Health Education Specialist, at (406) 452.0881 x308.
