To qualify for the free lung cancer screenings, you must be:
-- Between the ages of 55 and 80
-- Have no current symptoms of lung cancer
-- And either a current smoker with a significant history of smoking (30 pack-years, which can be defined as variously as a pack a day for 30 years or three packs a day for 10 years)
-- or a former smoker who quit within the last 15 years and also had a prior 30 pack-year smoking history
If you think you qualify for a free test, the Peoria Journal-Star gives the contact information as "contact Methodist at 671-8296 or St. Francis at 624-5864."
