March is National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month. Aimed at raising education within the public regarding diseases of the colon and rectum and to promote awareness of the importance of colorectal cancer screening, prevention and treatment. These efforts also provide an important platform into the profession to encourage others to consider careers in the field of colon and rectal surgery.
