Colorectal cancer is the second leading cancer killer in the U.S.  The Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommends screening for men and women beginning at age 50, as a way to prevent and/or to detect cancers.

Employees ages 50 and older are encouraged to call their primary care physician (PCP) to obtain a referral for a colorectal screening test.  Employees that receive a colorectal screening (colonoscopy) will receive 400 Vitality points.
