March is Colon Cancer Awareness month and Jefferson Healthcare Surgical Associates will host a Colorectal Cancer Awareness: Screening Methods and Recommendations seminar in the Dirksen Conference Room in Port Townsend. Surgeons Drs. David Schwartz and Kelsea Peterman will present recommendations for colon cancer screening along with the advantages and disadvantages for each option. Their presentation will address health factors to consider and provide attendees the information regarding screening methods they need to make an informed decision.
Jefferson Healthcare is an advocate for wellness, education and preventative screenings for community health and wellness. Colorectal cancer screening can help save lives. Regular screening is powerful and can find colorectal cancer early when it’s small and easier to treat. If polyps are found during colorectal cancer testing, they can usually be removed before they have the chance to turn into cancer. Testing can also result in finding cancer early, when it’s smaller and might be easier to treat.
