March is Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month. Colorectal cancer is the second-leading cause of cancer deaths in the U.S., but despite this statistic, nearly 1 in 3 people do not keep up-to-date with colorectal cancer screening, which can detect colorectal cancer early and even prevent it altogether.

Join Dr. Jessica Briscoe, Temple gastroenterologist, and Dr. Ana Gamero, Fox Chase Cancer Center Geneticist, as they discuss colorectal cancer prevention and what adults need to know about proactively taking care of their health.
