AGA Throws it Back to the '70s in New CRC Awareness Campaign

March 9, 2017

We’re calling attention to the fact that our friends who grew up in the '70s need to be screened for colorectal cancer.

In honor of Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month, AGA has launched a new “throwback” campaign to reach the target colorectal cancer screening population: patients over the age of 50. Throughout the month of March, we'll be posting memes on Facebook (examples below) designed to spark childhood memories, while letting folks know that it’s time to be screened.

You can help. Like AGA’s Facebook page to keep up with our awareness posts, which will continue through the end of March. Please share these posts with your friends to remind them of the importance of getting screened. For more information, patients can visit http://crcawareness.gastro.org/.
