Colorectal cancer is the third leading cause of cancer-related deaths in both men and women in the United States. Combined, it’s estimated there will be more than 150,000 new cases of colon and rectal cancer reported in the U.S. in 2022 alone. Colorectal polyps and colorectal cancer don’t always cause symptoms, especially at first. That’s why getting screened is so important. With early screening and testing, it is preventable, treatable, and beatable! The CDC updated recommendations to begin screening for colon cancer starting at age 45. This March during Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month, we encourage you and your loved ones to be aware of risk factors and get screened.
Did you know it's important to bring our kids to the clinic when they are well, too? During the months of August and September, Coal Country Community Health Center will be giving children ages 3-12 a FREE gift when seen for a well-child visit. Call to schedule at any of our locations today!
Coal Country Community Health Center will be holding Sports Physical Clinics at all clinic locations in July. Athletes participating in any sport during the 2021-2022 school year are encouraged to schedule an appointment.
