Learn the facts about colon cancer at hospital’s free seminar

It often begins with no reliable symptoms, yet can turn into a serious health issue. That’s why it’s important to get the facts about colon cancer and find out when screenings should begin.

With March being national Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month, Northwest Community Healthcare is hosting a free community health seminar. “Colon Cancer Facts & Fiction,” presented by Dr. Michael Hersh of the NCH Medical Group, takes place from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. on Saturday, March 10, in the NCH auditorium, 800 W. Central Road in Arlington Heights. Attendees should park in the Visitor Garage on the east side of the campus.

Dr. Hersh is a board-certified gastroenterologist who will discuss colon cancer statistics, risk factors, and screening guidelines and options. He will also answer questions and dispel common misconceptions.


Colon cancer is the third most common cancer in the United States. Approximately 150,000 Americans will be diagnosed with the disease this year, and almost 50,000 people will die from it. Screening can prevent cancer through the removal of pre-cancerous polyps, and for those with colon cancer, improve survival through early detection.

While the March event is free, registration is required because space is limited. Attendees can sign up online at nchmedicalgroup.com or by calling HealthConnection at 847.618.4968. Complimentary refreshments are available for 30 minutes before the seminar begins.

Attendees should also know that the NCH Medical Group is conducting a clinical research study to investigate the use of molecular detection of colorectal cancer. A clinical research project specialist will be on hand to provide information to those who may qualify for participation in the study.

For more details about Northwest Community Hospital and its comprehensive services, visit the hospital’s website at nch.org.
