Slide into Spring with a Colon Cancer Screening

Many people think about picking up their yard and deep cleaning their home in the spring. Why not consider ways to check in to your colon health too? Time to clean it out and get checked. Colorectal cancer is the third most diagnosed cancer in the United States. Screening is key to prevention and early detection. The State of Wisconsin Group Health Insurance Program covers screenings at 100% with no out-of-pocket costs for members age 45 or older. Listen in to this Well Wisconsin Radio podcast to learn more about screening options and talk to your doctor about what’s best for you.
