Valley Medical Group Offering Free Colorectal Cancer Screening in March


Among cancers that affect both men and women, colorectal cancer (cancer of the colon or rectum) is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Every year, about 140,000 Americans are diagnosed with colorectal cancer, and more than 50,000 people die from the disease.

During the month of March — Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month — Valley Medical Group will be offering free colorectal cancer screening kits at its 18 primary care practice locations.

One hundred colorectal cancer screening kits will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis at each of the participating 18 practices, which are located in Bergen, Passaic and Morris counties.

The kits will be available at participating Valley Medical Group practices starting March 1 and throughout the month of March as long as supplies last. Click here to find a participating Valley Medical Group practice near you or call 1-800-637-1136. While appointments are not necessary, calling the practice of your choice to ensure screening kits are still available is encouraged.
