During the month of September we are raising awareness for colorectal cancer!

Colorectal cancer is cancer that occurs in the colon or rectum. It is the second leading cancer killer in the United States and in West Virginia, but it doesn't have to be!

If you are are a male or female 50 or older, getting screened could save your life.

West Virginia University’s Division of Talent and Culture has joined the National Colorectal Cancer Roundtable by pledging to increase colorectal cancer screening to 80% among WVU benefits-eligible employees in an effort to reduce the burden of this disease. 

In signing the 80% pledge, the Division of Talent and Culture became one of 1,685 organizations nationwide that stand united in the belief that we can eliminate colorectal cancer as a major public health problem.

WVU Talent and Culture is partnering with WVU Cancer Prevention and Control to support comprehensive cancer control activities in West Virginia! Because of this effort, Talent and Culture is being nominated for the Mountains of Hope Spirit of Collaboration Award.
