Colon Cancer Awareness Month: Events Happening Near You

Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the U.S. Surprisingly, this goes for both men and women. Each March, Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month draws attention to prevention, detection and early treatment of this disease. Cone Health will be hosting free events around Greensboro to help raise awareness of the harmful effects of colon cancer throughout the month of March.

On March 21, visit the Strollin’ Colon event at Whole Foods in the Friendly Shopping Center. This free event will feature prizes, a healthy eating cooking demonstration, education using an interactive inflatable colon and much more!

The second event on March 23 will feature clinical experts in the Armfield Auditorium at Wesley Long Hospital. These specialists will share the latest information about healthy eating, genetic testing and advances in DNA testing as a colonoscopy alternative.

We invite you to visit these free events and learn more about the significance of preventing colon cancer. Registration is required for the March 23 event, but both are completely free to the community. Register here today!
