To help raise awareness about how colorectal cancer can be prevented and treated, Crozer-Keystone Health System worked to gain official proclamations from various government leaders and municipalities to recognize March as National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month.

Among the municipalities who partnered with Crozer-Keystone to release proclamations were the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania (office of Governor Tom Corbett), Delaware County (County Council), Aston, Springfield, Ridley Park and Upper Darby.

The efforts to gain the proclamations were led by Patti Hollenback, R.N., B.S.N., O.C.N., nurse navigator at the Crozer Regional Cancer Center.

Beginning with national “Dress in Blue Day” and continuing throughout the month, Hollenback and her Crozer-Keystone colleagues worked to educate the community about colorectal cancer. Crozer-Keystone sponsored a range of free educational events and screenings throughout the month.
