March is Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month

March is Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month. Colorectal Cancer is the third most common cancer, based on new diagnoses each year. It is also the second most deadly cancer in both men and women. But it is easily cured if diagnosed early. For the the second year UHA is offering the home-testing kit to its customers, but this test is covered by all insurers. The home F.I.T. [fecal immunochemical testing] kit is an annual test, but it is private, non-invasive, convenient and requires no complicated prep in advance of the test.
