More than one million people in the U.S. have beaten colon cancer. Despite those victories, colorectal cancer is still the third leading cause of cancer-related deaths across the country.
To encourage healthy lifestyle choices to help reduce the risk of colon cancer and educate on the importance of screenings, Mercy is hosting a free lunch and learn called “Know Your Colon: Reducing Your Risk of Cancer through Lifestyle” on Wednesday, November 16, at noon, at the Chickasaw Nation Community Center, located at 700 N. Mississippi in Ada.
Attendees can learn about a healthy lifestyle to help reduce their risk of colon cancer during a presentation by Sarah Miracle, RDN, LD, FAND, with the Chickasaw Nation, and will leave the event with delicious, healthy recipes and information on prevention and screenings.
