University Gastroenterology Launching Colon Cancer Outreach In Observance of Black History Month

The statistics are staggering. African Americans are 20% more likely to get colon cancer and 40% more likely to die from the disease than any other racial group. That is why University Gastroenterology – Southern New England’s largest gastroenterology practice – is launching a campaign coinciding with Black History Month aimed at informing the Black community about the symptoms, the risks, and the importance of knowing your family history.
