More good things are happening in the digestive health world, thanks in no small part to social networks connecting the people who care about them the most. Those fighters keep the movement toward awareness going forward; and awareness leads to early detection and ultimately, prevention!
Here are some upcoming events to get involved in the fight against colon cancer, crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.
