Here’s everything you need to know about the free health screenings.

Below is an interview I did on Tuesday with the lovely & talented Holly Kennedy-Givens:

Here's something else that Holly wanted everyone to know about:

Covenant Joe Arrington Cancer Research and Treatment Center (JACC) invite the Lubbock community to the First Friday Art Trail to view an exhibit of artwork from Oncology on Canvas, an art exhibition honoring the journeys people face when confronted by a cancer diagnosis. The art will be displayed on Friday, April 1 from 6 – 9 p.m. at McPherson Cellars, 1615 Texas Avenue.

Launched in 2004, Lilly Oncology on Canvas is now showcasing art from its 2010 competition. The biennial art competition invites people from the United States and Puerto Rico diagnosed with any type of cancer – as well as their families, friends, caregivers and health care providers – to express, through art and narrative, the life-affirming changes that give their cancer journeys meaning.

This is the first time actual art from the exhibit has been displayed in Lubbock. I think your audience would really enjoy learning about this opportunity being offered in Lubbock.

Below is a press release with more information regarding the exhibit:
