Electrical contractor MMR recently offered onsite skin cancer screenings to employees at its Belle Chasse, Broussard and Baton Rouge, La., offices through the Mary Bird Perkins – Our Lady of the Lake Cancer Center’s workplace program. Area dermatologists, who work with the program, screened 93 MMR employees for skin cancer. 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 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.

More than two dozen Rosendin employees and family members collected enough trash and debris to fill 30 large trash bags and also collected discarded tires and pieces of foam dock wreckage. The community service project is part of Rosendin’s ongoing efforts to give back to the communities it serves across the U.S.
