FREE HEALTH SEMINAR: All About Colon Cancer SCREENING & PREVENTION

March 2, 2015 @ 5:00 pm - 7:30 pm

FREE

Colon cancer is the second-leading cause of cancer death in the United States, but it doesn’t have to be. This is one cancer that can be found early, and can even be prevented, with recommended screening. Our experts will explain all you need to know about colon cancer, the risk factors, and screening and prevention. Our keynote speaker, NY1’s Roma Torre, will tell us why she was screened for colon cancer, how it saved her life, and how it could save yours.
