A couple of years ago, the Centers for Disease Control or CDC reported that while the number of colorectal cancer deaths throughout the United States have drastically gone down in recent years, Washington still ranks number one in the country for the highest rate of colon cancer deaths. The numbers are staggering: 21.1 per 100,000 deaths in Washington, D.C. alone.
Don’t Be Left Behind
This bit of information should prompt everyone to learn more about colorectal cancer especially since this kind of matter is something uncomfortable to deal with.
Fortunately, there will be a free presentation about colorectal cancer on March 25, from 12PM to 1PM, at the Tri Cities Cancer Center – Wellness Center. Luay Ailabouni, MD will preside over the presentation.
Knowing that colon and rectal concerns are private, Dr. Ailabouni will endeavor to present the matter in a sensitive and respectful way, the same as how he treats his patients. Incidentally, Dr. Ailabuoni is a general, colon, and rectal surgeon with Kadlec Clinic.
Lunch will be provided, so it’s important that you RSVP by March 23. You may RSVP by visiting the Tri Cities Cancer Center’s website.Posted by Colleen D Lane on
