Steven O’Day: Don’t let Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month pass this year without engaging

Steven O’Day shared on LinkedIn:

“Don’t let Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month pass this year without engaging!

The rise of “young-onset colorectal cancer” warrants everyone’s attention, and I’m going to post about it all month. To begin, our friends at Colorectal Cancer Alliance offer an easy-to-understand overview of the numbers, the possible causes, and the screening options.”
