Gastroenterology Consultants Goes Blue on March 7th
March is National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month, and the physicians and staff of Gastroenterology Consultants are kicking it off on Friday, March 7th, 2014, by wearing their blue on “National Dress in Blue Day.” Join them in the fight against colon cancer and encourage screening by wearing your blue on this day. Invite family and friends, your employer and fellow colleagues to join you and Gastroenterology Consultants in going blue and spreading the word about colon cancer all month long.
Colon cancer is preventable with screening, yet, it still remains as the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the US among both men and women. Thanks to an increase in educational awareness efforts, the number of deaths from colon cancer has been on a decline path and many lives are being saved.
