Queen’s Colon Screening Fair with partnership of Queen’s Cancer Center
KEEP YOUR Colon HEALTHY
Friday, March 27, 2015 • 9:00 am – 1:00 pm
The Queen’s Medical Center, Punchbowl, 1301 Punchbowl St., Harkness Courtyard
Travel your way through the fair! You will be guided to stations where you will be provided with facts on why colon cancer awareness is so important. Don’t forget to get your healthy colon boarding pass stamped at each station. Collect all eight stamps to complete your healthy colon travel for a chance to WIN a $200 Hawaiian Airlines Gift Card! Colo-rectal cancer arises from pre-cancerous growths or polyps that grow in the colon. When detected early, polyps can be removed, halting their progression to colo-rectal cancer. Remember, prevention is powerful. You can download the flier here.
March is colon cancer awareness month. For more information on this highly preventable cancer, read more here at cancer.org.
And for a totally different kind of screening….
This one is for your eyes, ears and brain! You can screen the trailer to the new PBS video “Emperor of All Maladies” now live at PBS. THE STORY OF CANCER: The Emperor of All Maladies (link to trailer) examines cancer with a cellular biologist’s precision, a historian’s perspective and a biographer’s passion. The series artfully weaves three different films in one: a riveting historical documentary; an engrossing and intimate vérité film; and a scientific and investigative report. For local, free full-length screenings of the PBS special on March 25, please visit the PBS Hawaii Eventbrite page.
