Center for Colon Cancer Research at USC hosts survivors; launches awareness campaign

Scientists from the Center for Colon Cancer Research at the University of South Carolina will join cancer survivors and physicians at an event at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 27 to highlight the importance of colon cancer screenings. The event will be held at the Jones Physical Sciences Center, room 614, 712 Main Street Columbia.

Presenters will discuss upcoming public awareness activities and share important facts about the disease. Media will have an opportunity to hear personal stories from those who beat colon cancer and get valuable insight from doctors on what the public should know about the disease, the second leading cause of cancer death in South Carolina.

March is National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month, and a schedule of upcoming activities in South Carolina will be released at Wednesday’s event.
