Colon cancer affects 1.2 million people in America and kills 50,000 each year. Most of the time, there are no noticeable symptoms. One of the organizations heading up the fight against this often quiet, but progressive disease is the Colon Cancer Alliance. In this latest installment of the Health Matters at Work podcast series, host Jerry Franz meets with Dr. Laura Porter of the Colon Cancer Alliance. Dr. Porter is herself a survivor of Stage 4 colon cancer, so she knows first-hand the importance of raising awareness of this disease and promoting early detection.
Join host Jerry Franz in getting to know what the nation's most trusted health charities can do for you and your family. Every month the Health Matters at Work podcast series explores current health topics by interviewing experts from America's credible health charities in a talkshow format.
