Rudy Quijas Memorial Prostate Screening
Rudy Quijas, founder of Rudy’s Tacos, always had the community’s best interest at heart. Even when he was near the final stages of his battle with prostate cancer, he wanted to give something back to his community.
The Quijas family, along with Trinity Regional Health System and Community Health Partners, has kept his memory and wishes alive by inviting Quad Cities men to participate in the annual Rudy Quijas Fight Against Cancer Memorial Prostate Screening held every spring.
The screening will include a free PSA (Prostate Specific Antigen) blood test and digital rectal exam. Screening times are available by appointment and are held at Trinity Moline and Trinity Bettendorf. All men are encouraged to participate in this event each year, particularly those between the ages of 40 and 80, those who have a family history of the disease and/or those who are African American or Hispanic. Men need not have had a history of treatment for prostate cancer to be at increased risk.
Please check back each spring for dates, times, and appointment instructions for the screening.
