Press play to hear a Public Service Announcement from the Atlantic County Division of Public Health.

Hello, I'm Atlantic County Executive Dennis Levinson. Chances are you know someone who has been affected by colorectal cancer.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths among men and women.

March is recognized as National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month. Let's honor the many survivors, patients, caregivers and friends whose lives have been affected by colorectal cancer.

Schedule a colon cancer screening today.

Colon cancer is known as a silent killer, because there are often no symptoms until it's too late to treat.

But the good news is that colon cancer is 90% preventable when detected early. If you're 50 years old or older, getting a screening test for colorectal cancer could save your life.

The Atlantic County Division of Public Health offers colon cancer screenings as well as referrals for follow up treatment, to eligible residents at no charge. For more information or to schedule an appointment, call 645-5933. That number again is 645-5933.

This is Denny Levinson for the Atlantic County Division of Public Health: working for healthy people and healthy communities.
