Oct. 27th: Colon Cancer - A Preventable Killer
With Colon Cancer being a hot-spot given the high-diagnosis rate in our region, this discussion dives deeper into this deadly, but preventable cancer. This Previvor lecture is unique with two physician speakers. Dr. Mark Titus, a gastroenterologist, specializing in the digestive system, provides information on screenings and new technologies for colon cancer, alongside Dr. Brian Billings, a board-certified colorectal surgeon, who discusses the genetics behind and treatments for colon cancer.
Every event will have refreshments, health information and answers to your questions from doctors and survivors.
