Montefiore’s Colon Cancer Screening Program

Stay Safe and Keep It Rolling During Colorectal Cancer Month at Montefiore Einstein

Taking care our colons is one of those personal health tasks that we all should manage on a regular basis. We know you have had other things on your mind over the past couple of years, but if you are 45 years or older, now would be a good time to take care of one of the most important things you can do for your colon’s health: schedule your colon cancer screening.

At Montefiore Einstein, our promise of safety goes beyond industry standards to introduce the most rigorous COVID-SAFE Care protocols currently available. So help your colon keep it rolling by learning about colon health and not delaying your regular screening.
