Brooklyn Borough President, Eric L. Adams has partnered with a number of Brooklyn’s hospitals and medical centers, to promote the importance of screening for colon cancer.  On March 1, the Borough President hosted a Colon Cancer Awareness event at Borough Hall, which kicked off the month-long screening initiative.

The Importance of Colon Cancer Screening

According to the Department of Health, colorectal cancers are more treatable when found early, before the cancer spreads to other parts of the body. Men and women over the age of 50 who are at average risk for getting colon cancer, should be screened to increase the chances of preventing colorectal cancer or diagnosing it early.

The Brooklyn Borough President’s office can assist with scheduling your screening.  Call the Borough President’s office at (718)802-3847 to schedule your screening.
