In a logic of local prevention, Grand Chalon, through its “Health and Disability” service, engages each year in the fight against cancer, via national awareness campaigns; Blue March (colorectal cancer), Pink October (breast cancer), awareness weeks for diabetes, kidney and heart diseases, specific women’s health screening days, etc.

Grand Chalon has created “multi-screening” days to offer residents a complete, quick and free “check-up” allowing the maximum number of people to be screened. An unprecedented action whose first edition took place in November 2023 in the priority district of Prés-Saint-Jean in Chalon-sur-Saône. Crowned with success, it attracted 120 participants.
