Ephraim McDowell Health offering free screening kits during National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month
EPHRAIM MCDOWELL HEALTH
Colon cancer is a preventable disease, but it is the second leading cancer killer in men and third in women in the United States. It doesn’t have to be. Nine out of 10 colon cancer cases may be prevented or cured with regular screenings.
Ephraim McDowell Health Community Services, with the support of the Ephraim McDowell Health Care Foundation, is working to raise awareness that regular screenings can detect cancer in its early stages, when it is the most treatable.
Ephraim McDowell Health will offer free, take-home colon cancer screening kits in March, which is observed as National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month. The screening kits are available for anyone over the age of 50 who has not had a screening in the last 12 months. The kits may be picked up after March 24 at any of the following locations during normal business hours.
