Get Screened Like Your Life Depends On It!
Cancer is the leading cause of line-of-duty deaths for firefighters, followed closely by heart disease.
The City of Syracuse health plan now offers firefighters earlier access to the following potential life-saving screenings.
Screenings are offered in collaboration with Crouse Medical Practice – Cardiology, Crouse Radiology Associates and Hematology-Oncology Associates of CNY (HOA).
Most of these screenings can be completed during the 2022 Firefighter Screening Day on Saturday, May 14 or you can be scheduled to complete the screenings on another day that is convenient for you.
Submitting the scheduling request form will help expedite your registration call. If you have any questions or would prefer to call our team to register, please contact Marianne Kokosenski at 315-472-7504 x1349 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
