CRH hosts talk on importance of colon cancer screening

         Columbus’ Brad Davis never imagined he’d be an advocate for colon cancer screening. However, that all changed when the Columbus resident, husband and father of four was diagnosed in 2017 with colon cancer at age 47. Davis has a passion for sharing his story.

          “If I can save one person from having to go through what I did, then this is all worth it,” he said.

           Columbus Regional Health invites you to join Davis and gastroenterologist Patrick Barrett, M.D. as they discuss the signs and symptoms of colon cancer, the importance of screening colonoscopy and the steps you can take to protect your colorectal health.  

            The free Lunch and Learn, “How a Colonoscopy Saved My Life – the Brad Davis Story,” runs from Noon to 1 p.m. March 20 at WellConnect. Lunch will be provided. Registration is required. For more information and to register, visit crh.org/events.
