Free colonoscopies available in March



On March 16, Advanced Gastroenterology will have a free colonoscopy day for people who are uninsured and qualify for the program.

Potential patients, 50 and older, who have never had a screening colonoscopy should ask their primary care physician to nominate them for consideration by Feb. 15.

Advanced Gastroenterology staff members will select the patients to be accepted on the free day.

March is Colon Cancer Awareness month.

Advanced Gastroenterology is at 2415 N.E. 134th St. 360-576-5060.
