Did you know that colorectal cancer - cancer of the colon or rectum - is the third most common cancer diagnosed in both men and women in the U.S.? Fortunately, colorectal cancer can often be prevented, if detected early.

Our speaker is Dr. Dennis Ahnen, who has more than 40 years experience in successfully screening for and treating gastrointestinal diseases. He’ll explain screenings that can detect and even prevent colon cancer, as well as healthy lifestyle choices that can lower cancer risk. Then he’ll describe genetic testing for hereditary colorectal cancer.
