Home    Newsroom    News Releases    CoxHealth News: June 2008    CoxHealth/Springfield Cardinals team up to knock out prostate cancer
CoxHealth/Springfield Cardinals team up to knock out prostate cancer

Join the CoxHealth Hulston Cancer Center for Men's Health Day at Hammons Field this Saturday, June 14, as the Springfield Cardinals take on the Northwest Arkansas Naturals at 6:10 p.m.

All men aged 50 and older who haven't had a prostate-specific antigen (PSA) screening within the past year and attend the game can receive a free PSA test, courtesy of CoxHealth Hulston Cancer Center. The PSA involves a simple blood draw. Men 40 and older with a family history of the disease are also eligible. 

"In order to catch prostate cancer in its earliest stages, when it's most treatable, it's important to have regular screenings," says Autumn Bragg, Hulston Cancer Center Community Oncology Educator.

The screenings will be held in the first aid room at Hammons Field, on the main concourse level.

CoxHealth is also honored to announce that patient and board member Donald Duncan will throw the first pitch at Saturday's game. Duncan is a patient at Hulston Cancer Center and is a prostate cancer survivor.

For more information about the free PSA screening at the Cardinals game, contact CoxHealth Hulston Cancer Center at 269-5257. Tickets for Saturday's game can be purchased at the gate, from the Springfield Cardinals by calling 863-2143 or online at

Hulston Cancer Center will offer free prostate cancer screenings from 8 to 10 a.m. Wednesday, June 25 in the Allenbrand Resource Center, Suite 120, Hulston Cancer Center. The screenings will include a prostate-specific antigen (PSA) blood test.

Participants must be at least 50 years old (45 with a family history), and not have had a PSA test in the last year. Registration is required by June 23.

For more information or to register for the June 23 screening, call 269-INFO .
