Marie Keating mobile unit visiting Callan

The Marie Keating mobile unit is visiting Droichead Family Resource Centre, Millstreet on the 19th May. Both men and women are encourage to visit and the service is free of charge to the public.

The mobile unit focuses on raising awareness of all of the common cancers affecting men and women in Ireland and the healthy lifestyle choices that reduce the risk of cancer,

The mobile information unit is stocked with take-home information leaflets and packs on the various cancers. The Marie Keating Foundation nurses can talk to people in a private area on board the unit about any concerns that they may have about cancer, either for themselves or for someone else such as a family member or friend. The Foundation is keen to ensure that the harder-to-reach groups are included as part of this nationwide service and makes a concerted effort to target those living in socially deprived areas and people in areas which have a high occurrence of cancer.

Each mobile information unit has interactive displays such as Smokerlyzer® test to measure the carbon monoxide levels in your lungs (for smokers), Fizz to Fat which shows how sugary beverages can turn into body fat, and Fat Chunk models which realistically represent the look and feel of fat inside the body.

You can find more information about the mobile unit and the visit to Callan by visiting the Marie Keating website.
