The Moores UCSD Cancer Center will present a free public seminar highlighting colorectal cancer awareness, prevention and screening from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, March 15, at the Cancer Center, 3855 Health Sciences Drive, La Jolla.
The event, held in connection with Colon Cancer Awareness Month, will feature the following Cancer Center specialists and topics:
Colorectal cancer, the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the United States, is a term for cancer that develops in the colon or rectum. The American Cancer Society notes that the five-year survival rate for those treated in early stage colorectal cancer, before it has spread, is greater than 90 percent. However, only 39 percent of these cancers are found at that early stage.
This free educational seminar was made possible with the support of Quidel, Inc.
