Mobile Lung CT Coach to visit Bradley County   CHATTANOOGA – CHI Memorial’s mobile lung CT coach will be at the Cleveland Family YMCA  on Monday, Oct. 21, from 9 a.m. to noon.   Lung cancer screening is a test to look for signs of lung cancer in otherwise healthy people. The low-dose CT scan shows a 3-D image of your lungs that is clearer and more detailed than regular x-rays, allowing doctors to diagnose lung cancer at its earliest stage, before there are any symptoms. This is when lung cancer is most curable. The whole process takes less than ten minutes and there is no need to do anything special to prepare for the screening. The low-dose CT lung cancer scan has been shown to improve survival by 20 percent according to The National Lung Screening Trial (NLST) by the National Cancer Institute (NCI).    Factors that put you at high risk of developing lung cancer include: age 50 or greater; smoking history; family history of cancer; or exposure to cancer causing agents (asbestos, diesel fumes, Radon, coal smoke, soot, etc.)   Private insurance companies cover lung cancer screening for high-risk individuals. Medicare and Medicaid also cover lung cancer screening. Grant funds are available for eligible uninsured and under-insured people to have the low-dose lung CT screening.   If you feel you are at risk, call us at (423) 495-LUNG (5864) to discuss if a lung screening is right for you, or to schedule an appointment.   more
BCSO to host Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day Trash and litter prevention are a focal point in our community, which is why everyone in Bradley County is invited to participate in our annual Household Hazardous Waste Day. Not all waste disposal is as easy as rolling the trashcan out to the street – some waste disposal takes a little more effort, which is why the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office and Bradley County Litter Program is inviting all to participate. We all produce day-to-day trash, but many do not know how long it takes for that trash to decompose back into dirt. Due to complex, man-made materials, a great majority of our trash takes months and sometimes years to break down entirely. For example, a fast food meal decomposes in two months; a cigarette butt in 10 to 12 years; a plastic grocery bag in one thousand years; and a glass bottle in one million years. Disposing of these improperly is not only detrimental to our environment, but poses hazards to your own personal health. Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day is a convenient opportunity for Bradley County residents to dispose of trash, while learning responsible disposal methods for the future. There will be a disposal station for electronics, paint, oil and liquid chemicals, as well as a paper shredding station (limited to two bags per person). more
