Community members will have the opportunity to tour the health center, meet OCO’s reproductive health providers, and learn more about the Reproductive Health Services program. Additionally, OCO health care providers will be offering, on site, clinical breast exams, pap/pelvic exams, and STD and HIV testing.
“This is a great opportunity to discover the many healthcare services that OCO offers and how to access them,” said Cancer Services Program Manager Carolyn Handville. “One of the highlights of the day will be a presentation by Heather Shannon, NP on HPV. That begins at 10:00 a.m. and is open to the public. There will also be free coffee, tea, cookies, and light refreshments. I invite community members to join this fun and informative event!” Appointments can be made for OCO Reproductive Health by calling 315-598-4740.
