  • Over 50? Screening For Colorectal Cancer Can Save Your Life

    HARTFORD — The Connecticut Department of Public Health is joining public health officials across the country by recognizing March as National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month and encouraging people to begin screening for colorectal cancer soon after turning 50. Then, continue getting screened at regular intervals.

    People with a family history or certain medical conditions may need to start screening even earlier.
