March | Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month
Sponsor: Prevent Cancer Foundation
The good news? If everyone age 50 and older got regular screenings, 6 out of 10 deaths from colorectal cancer could be prevented. Communities, health professionals, and families can work together to encourage people to get screened.
How can Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month make a difference?
We can use this month to raise awareness about colorectal cancer and take action toward prevention. Communities, organizations, families, and individuals can get involved and spread the word.
Here are just a few ideas:
- Encourage families to get active together – physical activity may help reduce the risk of colorectal cancer.
- Talk to family, friends, and people in your community about the importance of getting screened for colorectal cancer starting at age 50.
- Encourage people over 50 to use this interactive tool to decide which colorectal cancer screening test they prefer.
- Ask doctors and nurses to talk to patients age 50 and older about the importance of getting screened.
Since 1985, Heritage Health has provided the most vulnerable members of the community with access to quality healthcare. All services, including medical, dental, and behavioral health, are offered regardless of income and insurance status. We strive to improve the overall health of the communities we serve by expanding and improving access to health and wellness services. Your donation helps make healthcare access a reality.
