Come Scope Us Out

By: Boone County

Did you know Colorectal cancer is the third most common type of cancer? That’s the bad news. The good news is… it’s slow to develop and largely preventable with regular screening. In fact, the CDC statistics show that if the entire population was screened at the age of 50, the number of colorectal cancer-related deaths could be cut by 60%.

Come find out everything you need to know at our event Wednesday April 26th. Doors will open at 6:00 p.m. with registration from 6:00 to 6:30  and speakers beginning at 7:00.

Topics will include:

“All You Need to Know about Colon Health and Cancer Prevention” by Dr. Anthony Kusek

“Are you prepared? Tips for a Stress-Free Colonoscopy Experience” by Kim Heying, RN

“Understanding Insurance Coverage” by Stacey Slaymaker, CPC

“The Personal Journey of a Colon Cancer Survivor” by Kevin Lyons

To enhance your learning experience, you’ll have the opportunity to take a stroll through a giant colon like the one pictured. It’s an experience you won’t soon forget, and a fun way to learn what’s healthy… and what isn’t.
