2019 Colorectal Cancer Awareness Day


Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer-related death in the United States, and an estimated 140,000 more people will be diagnosed with it in 2019. Despite this prevalence, screening for colorectal cancer remains low - the FDA says that 1 in 3 adults over age 50 hasn’t been screened.

Join colorectal surgeon Dr. Debbie Keller and other colorectal health experts from Columbia to learn about the next steps you or a loved one can take for colorectal cancer treatment. Medical experts will be on hand to answer any questions you have about keeping your colon healthy.
