Colorectal Cancer Awareness

Cali Riese, West Oneonta, a public education and community outreach specialist with the Bassett Medical Center, left, talks with Tracy Baker, Cooperstown, about the importance of colon cancer screenings at their Colon Cancer Awareness Celebration on Friday afternoon in Oneonta. “Otsego County’s colon cancer screening rate is below the state average.” said Riese, “Colon cancer is the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths and 60% of those could have been prevented from screening.” Visitors could enjoy light refreshment, try their hand at a corn hole game, view the large inflatable colon, and sign up for free take-home screening kits.
