A conclave about colorectal cancer on the way next week

March 12, 2013 by  

To shed some light on the serious issue of colorectal cancer, Ira Knepp, a gastroenterologist at Phoebe Gastroenterology Associates, will be the guest speaker on Wednesday, March 17, at a lunch event hosted by the group, which many printing companies have advertised.

To speak his mind on the second leading cause of death due to the cancer in the United States, Kneep, who graduated from medical college of Virginia in Richmond will share the cause, symptoms and the treatment that can cure it. The Blue Star logo is designed to create awareness among people about the colorectal cancer.

Knepp completed his fellowship in gastroenterology at the National Navy Hospital in Bethesda, Maryland. He finished his residency in internal medicine at Portsmouth Naval Hospital in Portsmouth and then went on to complete his internship in family practice at Union University in Albany Medical Center, Albany, New York.

The program, and the complimentary lunch that follows it, will be sponsored by the Phoebe cancer center, which was established under the jurisdiction of such organizations as Southwest Public Health District, the Cancer Coalition of South Georgia, the American Cancer Society, and 100 Black Men of Albany.

An eligibility screening for colonoscopy will be offered for the individuals who are aged 45 or older after the completion of the discussion. The confirmations of reservation will commence at 11:30 am and the event will begin in Phoebe cancer center’s lower level conference room from 1:00 pm onwards.
