Tuesday, March 8, 2016

 

Preventing Colorectal Cancer (PCC), a not-for-profit advocacy organization would like to show its support in recognizing March as National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month. Founded in 2008, PCC’s mission is to educate the public and key stakeholders about the opportunities to reduce the incidence of colorectal cancer through screening and care options for patients and clinicians.

“A cancer prevented is better than a cancer cured,” says Steven J. Morris, MD, FACP, PCC board chair and president, Atlanta Gastroenterology Associates. “We hope our efforts through Preventing Colorectal Cancer will save lives by providing information and guidance needed to educate the public, policymakers and other key stakeholders regarding colorectal cancer screening, not only in March, but every month of the year.”
