A Message from our CEOs - March 2017

Apr 3, 2017

CEOs of providence hospitals

As we enjoy the beginning of spring and warm weather, it is important to note that March is also Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month. While you spend more time outside gathering with family, we encourage you to start conversations with your loved ones about colorectal cancer. 

According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States, and 90% of cases occur in men and women aged 50 and over. Fortunately, this type of cancer is highly preventable with proper screenings.

Want to minimize you and your family’s risk? You can start by taking these steps:

Eat a diet rich in fruits and vegetables. Limit red and processed meats.
Don’t smoke.

Maintain a healthy weight.

Get active. Regular exercise improves your overall health and lowers your risk factors for many diseases, including colorectal cancer.

Get regular screenings. Pre-cancerous polyps and colorectal cancer don’t always cause symptoms, especially at first. Speak with your doctor about the screening options that are right for you.

Don’t procrastinate on colon health. Click here to schedule an appointment to speak with your provider about screening today.

The health of our community is important to us and as with many health issues, identifying colorectal cancer early can substantially improve outcomes. Thank you for making The Hospitals of Providence your provider of choice.
