Yale-New Haven Hospital will offer free colorectal cancer screening


Event will be held March 7

NEW HAVEN - In observance of National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month, Yale-New Haven Hospital, in conjunction with the section of digestive diseases from Yale School of Medicine, will offer adults free colorectal cancer screenings from 8 a.m. to 3 pm March 7 at Temple Medical Center, 40 Temple St., Suite 1A. Walk-ins are welcome, but registration is preferred.
Colorectal cancer is the second leading cancer killer in the United States, according to the hospital. Screening tests can find precancerous polyps so they can be removed before they have a chance to turn into cancer.
For more information, or to register for a colorectal cancer screening, call (203) 785-4138.
