Womankind Staff Dresses in Blue to Support Colon Health March 6 2015

The Womankind staff dresses in blue to help raise awareness for colon health. Launched by the Colon Cancer Alliance, “National Dress in Blue Day” draws attention to the fact that colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in Florida among cancers that affect both men and women. Regular screening for colorectal cancer should begin at age 50. Testing options and their recommended frequency include:

• A Fecal Immunochemical Test or FIT (testing for blood in the stool) annually

• A sigmoidoscopy every five years with FIT every three years

• A colonoscopy every 10 years

Through a grant from the Health Foundation of South Florida,

Womankind offers free FIT testing for their patients over 50.
