A walk-through larger than life colon will be set up in the hospital’s atrium March 12-14. Visitors can learn about colorectal cancer, prevention, and screenings.
Lake Charles Memorial Health System will once again offer free colorectal screening kits in an effort to help detect colorectal cancer at its earliest—and most treatable—stages. A non-invasive test that can be completed in the privacy of your home, the screening can identify hidden blood in stool samples, which is the first and in many cases the only warning sign of colorectal disease.
A Colorectal Health Fair will be held in the Memorial Hospital atrium on Wednesday, March 14 from 11am – 1pm.
