The Town Turns Orange

Burnie City Council is turning orange to promote Bowel Cancer Screening.

This June is Bowel Cancer Awareness Month and we are illuminating the Burnie City Council Offices orange to promote participation in the National Bowel Cancer Screening Program.

 The Program sends free home screening kits to eligible Tasmanians aged 50-74. When you receive your kit in the mail – don’t put it off! #justpooit

Completing the kit is as easy as “POO POKE POST”.

This year, the Tasmanian Health Service is focusing on encouraging Tasmanians to complete the free National Bowel Cancer Screening Program kit when it is sent to them. When found early, up to 90% of bowel cancers can be successfully treated, which is why screening is so important.
