St. Luke’s Gastroenterologist Dr. Yoni Hillman is hosting a free virtual community event. He will talk about the importance of colorectal cancer prevention and screening, which could be potentially lifesaving.

Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States. Men and women are equally at risk for colon cancer. Colon cancer is one of the most preventable types of cancer and is often curable when detected early.

The free, virtual event will be at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, December 1. Registration is required to receive a Zoom invitation.
