March is Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month
|National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month, held in March each year, offers healthcare providers who care for patients with diseases of the colon and rectum a valuable opportunity to educate their community about these diseases and promote awareness of the importance of colorectal cancer screening, prevention, and treatment. These efforts may also provide a window into the profession and encourage others to consider careers in the field of colon and rectal surgery.
How to Raise Awareness
- Like, comment on and share our colon cancer awareness social media posts with your networks.
- Create your own and encourage others who have or know someone who has colorectal cancer to share.
Use the month of March to educate patients on your role and training as a colon and rectal surgeon and to help them find more information about their diseases.
