Elite Labs Cancer & Pharmaceutical Screenings
Aug 10 @ 10:00 am – 2:00 pm

You may qualify for a FREE Cancer and/or Pharmacogenomics test.

Do you have a personal history of cancer?  Why should you take the test?  These tests can test up to 39 different cancer genes, help lower the risk of cancer by surgery, change of lifestyle, or start screenings to catch cancer early.  If you already have cancer, testing may help guide targeted treatment.

Do  you currently take multiple medications for heart, pain or psychiatric?  These tests can help determine the risk of side effects and/or likelihood of effectiveness of a given medication decreasing the chances of Adverse Drug Reactions.  The tests can determine how well YOU metabolize medications.  Test results are not only important for the medications you are taking but potentially for other drugs prescribed in the future.

Staff members of CJ Sales, LLC, an authorized representative of Elite Laboratories will be on site to conduct tests and answer questions.
