One in 20 people will be diagnosed with colon cancer. It's a scary statistic and it's one of the reasons why PMA Medical Specialists recently held a company-wide event where employees helped incite awareness of colon cancer, a disease that can be prevented through screening but is still the second leading cause of overall cancer deaths in the US. The event took place in conjunction with the Colon Cancer Alliance's National Dress in Blue Day
program activities commemorating March as Colon Cancer Awareness month.
"We wanted to make a difference in the lives of our employees, their families and their friends. Our Dress in Blue Day event encouraged employees to talk to loved ones about colon cancer and the importance of being screened. By creating more awareness around this disease, we will save lives," said Dr. Elizabeth Rock. "It's important that we do our part by helping the Colon Cancer Alliance create a future free of colon cancer."
