March is Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month

In 2016, 1 in 3 people age 50 and older are not up to date with colorectal screenings. This equals 23 million people. More than 60% of deaths from colorectal cancer could be avoided by screening. If you are 50 or older, get tested for colon cancer, even if you have no family history. Help finish the fight against colon cancer! To schedule a screening, contact your medical provider today!
