Dress in Blue Day Colon Cancer Awareness

March is Colon Cancer Awareness Month 

Colon Cancer Awareness Month starts off each year on March 1 with Dress in Blue Day. The Oregon Clinic is proud to stand in solidarity with the Colorectal Cancer Alliance to raise awareness of colon and rectal cancers and to honor patients affected by colorectal cancer.  

We have celebrated Dress in Blue Day for many years, giving every GI team member a unique blue T-shirt to wear. To add to the fun, our GI clinics have also held contests for team members to come up with the slogan for that year’s T-shirt, with the winning slogan printed on over 300 T-shirts for our staff!   

On March 1, 2024, our GI Clinics joined allies in the GI community across the country by wearing our new blue T-shirt with this year’s winning staff-submitted slogan: Colonoscopies Save Lives! No If, Ands or Butts!

Give Your Colon the Spotlight and Schedule a Screening! 

  • Did you know that “45 is the new 50” to start screening for everyone at average risk for colorectal cancer? 
  • During a screening Colonoscopy, your gastroenterologist will look for growths in the colon called polyps and remove them during the procedure.  
  • Not all polyps turn into cancer, but all cancers start as polyps. Polyp removal prevents Colorectal Cancer before it can start! 

Schedule your screening colonoscopy with our Gastroenterology experts.
