#SaludTues Tweetchat 3/3: What You Should Know about Colorectal Cancer


Share On Social!

Colorectal cancer, which starts in the colon or rectum, is the third-most commonly diagnosed cancer. It also is the second-leading cause of cancer death in U.S. men and women.

Fortunately, if discovered early, it is highly treatable. And you can take steps to lower your risk.

Let’s use #SaludTues on Tuesday, March 3, 2020, to discuss colorectal cancer risk, screening, treatment, and survivorship in honor of National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month in March. Altogether, we can show how everyone can get involved to prevent colorectal cancer!

We’ll open the floor to your comments, tips, and stories as we explore:

  • The state of colorectal cancer among men, women, Latinos, and other groups
  • Screening and detection for colorectal cancer
  • Treatment and survivorship for colorectal cancer
  • Ways to lower risk for colorectal cancer

Use the hashtag #SaludTues to follow the conversation on Twitter. Share your strategies, stories, and resources to help people lower their risk of colorectal cancer!

#SaludTues is a health equity tweetchat especially focused on the Latino population at 12p CT/1p ET every Tuesday. #SaludTues is hosted by the @SaludAmerica program at the Institute for Health Promotion Research at UT Health San Antonio.
