March: National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month

A proclamation by Mayor Robert Reichert on Tuesday at 11 a.m. at City Hall will commence observance of National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month in Macon and the central Georgia community.

That's according to a MCCG news release.

The Cancer Life Center at MCCG will host two lunch-and-learn sessions titled, “What a Family History of Colon Cancer Could Mean for You.” Central and south Georgia residents or family members who have had colon, rectal or endometrial cancer diagnosis are invited. The dates are Friday, March 18 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. (lunch served) at Vineville United Methodist Church, 2045 Vineville Ave., and Tuesday, March 22 from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. (Hors d'oeuvres served) at the Museum of Arts and Sciences. Dr. Joel Judah, gastroenterologist, will speak at the former and Dr. Adam Levy, gastroenterologist, the latter. Genetics Counselor Whitney Cogswell will speak at both.

Central Georgia Health System employees, and central Georgia community members and organizations are encouraged to wear blue on National Dress in Blue Day on Friday, March 4 to raise awareness of colon cancer, the second leading cause of cancer death in the United States.
