National Dress in Blue Day is Friday, March 5th

Blue is the color of the day on Friday, March 6, to raise awareness for colon cancer, the second most deadly form of cancer among men and women in the country.

When you participate in National Dress in Blue Day, you show your support for colon cancer screenings, which can save lives. Colon cancer is highly treatable when it’s caught early, yet one-third of adults are not getting screened as recommended.

If your scrub color or uniform does not allow you to wear blue, there are other ways for you to show your support, including:

• Wear a blue ribbon on your scrubs or badge.

• Recognize a colon cancer survivor.

• Encourage your friends and family to wear blue.

• Learn your risk by taking an online colon cancer risk assessment.

If you’re age 50 or older, Norton Healthcare has made it simple for you to schedule your colonoscopy. With weekend appointments available and at-home colon cancer screening tests, why wait?
