Colon Health: What You Don't Know Could Be Hurting You

Posted: Updated:

Polyps.  Masses.  Malignancies.  All very dirty words, and not what any of us want to hear from our doctors.  Fortunately, knowing how to keep your colon healthy, how often you should be screened for colorectal cancer, and what you should look for from a physician who performs your screenings can greatly reduce your risk of developing colorectal cancer – an all-too-often silent killer.

To learn more about the steps you can take to keep your colon healthy, join us for Colon Health: What You Don't Know Could Be Hurting You with Dr. Frank Marrero, a gastroenterologist on staff at Lake Charles Memorial Hospital.    

A graduate of the University of Massachusetts Medical School in Worcester, Dr. Marrero completed his residency in internal medicine and fellowship in gastroenterology at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation in Cleveland, Ohio.

Colon Health: What You Don't Know Could Be Hurting You is a free seminar being held Friday, March 4th at 12 noon in the Shearman Conference Center at Lake Charles Memorial Hospital on Oak Park Boulevard.

Reservations are required. For more information or to reserve your seat, please visit www.lcmh.com/seminar or call (337) 494-2936.
