BATON ROUGE, La., June 14, 2021 (Newswire.com) - MMR Group offered on-site skin cancer screenings to employees at its Louisiana locations in Belle Chasse, Broussard and Baton Rouge offices through the Mary Bird Perkins - Our Lady of the Lake Cancer Center's Prevention on the Go - Workplace Program.
Area dermatologists, who work with the Prevention on the Go Program, screened 93 MMR employees for skin cancer, of which more than half had never received a screening before. Employees who had abnormal findings were referred to a specialty clinic and assisted by a nurse navigator to receive appropriate care.
MMR has participated in the Mary Bird Perkins Prevention on the Go - Workplace Program since 2018 and has provided skin cancer, breast cancer and oral cancer screenings and education to its employees. After receiving an overwhelming response from employees about previous screenings at the Baton Rouge Headquarters office, MMR decided to expand this opportunity to two district offices in Belle Chasse and Broussard, Louisiana.
"MMR is committed to providing exceptional benefits to our employees, and through our partnership with Mary Bird Perkins, employees are able to receive the best care in a convenient and affordable way," said MMR President/CEO James B. "Pepper" Rutland.
The Prevention on the Go - Workplace Program brings early detection, prevention, education, and screenings to company worksites at no charge to the employee. For more information on this program, click here.

Under the leadership of President and CEO James "Pepper" Rutland, MMR continues to grow both regionally and nationally with 30 branch offices throughout the United States as well as in Canada, Trinidad, Venezuela, Ecuador and Panamá.
