Pembroke Pines Outreach Health Festival
For our 10th and final Susie's Cause Free Outreach Health Festival of our 2016 10-city outreach health festival tour, we'll be teaming up with Cleveland Clinic Florida at Pembroke Lakes Mall in Pembroke Pines, Florida, on Saturday, December 3, from 1 to 5 p.m. See our festival flier for more details.
If you had an extra $57 in your pocket, what would you do with it? For Jack Bohn, a second-grader in Baltimore, the answer was easy.
Susie’s Cause set out in 2016 with a far-sweeping, ambitious goal: to provide colon cancer education across the country in the underserved communities—in which colon cancer diagnoses and deaths occur at an alarmingly high rate—of 10 major cities. We wanted our visits to these communities to follow the model of our annual Baltimore Health Festival, which we put on for the first time in 2014: a free day of overall health education, with a particular focus on colon cancer screening and prevention, along with entertainment, fun, and food for the entire family.

Hayward Outreach Health Festival:
Kaiser Permanente Puts a Permanent Smile on Our Faces!
Held at Southland Mall in Hayward, California, our Susie's Cause Free Hayward Outreach Health Festival engaged an estimated 1,751 members of the local community on Saturday, November 5. Our invaluable medical partner in this venture, Kaiser Permanente, organized a comprehensive lineup of resources and activities and deployed a large, enthusiastic team of staff and volunteers. We were honored to have Dr. Akhil Wadhera, chair of Kaiser Permanente’s Commission on Cancer Committee for the Southern Alameda County area, warmly welcome the crowd, stressing the importance of colorectal cancer screening and an overall healthy lifestyle.

A Delightful Day in the D.C. Area!
