The Heudebert FamilyUAB Employee Wellness brought back everyone's favorite inflatable this year to promote the benefits of colorectal cancer screening. While colon cancer is the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the U.S. each year, screening can prevent this cancer or find it early when it may be easier to treat. Screening is recommended for everyone starting at age 45, though some people with certain risk factors may need to start at a younger age. So, make sure you mind the bottom line, and talk to your health care provider about adding colon cancer screening to your wellness regimen today!
