2014 Colorectal Cancer Awareness — promotional materials available
KAFP
CDC's Screen for Life: National Colorectal Cancer Action Campaign informs men and women aged 50 years and older about the importance of having regular colorectal cancer screening tests.

Screening tests help find precancerous polyps so they can be removed before they have a chance to turn into cancer. This prevents the disease. Screening also can find this cancer at an early stage, when treatment is most effective. However, about one-third of adults aged 50 or older (about 22 million people) —the age group at greatest risk of developing colorectal cancer — have not been screened appropriately.

Take advantage of the marketing materials and campaigns for Colorectal Cancer Awareness. Download your materials order form today — click here.
