Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month: Learn about prevention and screening methods from DHMC experts

Updated: Mar 18, 2022

Lebanon, NH – Regular screening for prevention and early detection are the best forms of protection when it comes to cancer. Colon and rectal cancers in particular are among the few cancers that can be prevented, and among the most curable forms of cancer when found early.

In an upcoming installment of Dartmouth-Hitchcock Health’s (D-HH’s) Healthy Living Series of virtual webinars, two Dartmouth-Hitchcock (D-H) experts will provide helpful information on the prevention and treatment of colorectal cancers, and answer questions from participants. Topics addressed by Lynn F. Butterly, MD, director of Colorectal Cancer Screening for D-H, and Gabriel A. Brooks, MD, a medical oncologist at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, will include:

  • How screenings can prevent colorectal cancer

  • Information about the different types of screening tests

  • Understanding your risk

  • Various treatment options, if cancer is found

“March is recognized nationally as Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month, and it’s a wonderful opportunity to educate people about how to protect themselves and understand their risk for colorectal cancers,” Butterly said. “Colorectal cancer is a preventable disease, and in addition, when colorectal cancer is present, finding it early leads to much better outcomes.”

“The Importance of Screening for Colorectal Cancer” will be held on Tuesday, March 22, from 6 to 7 pm. The event is free, and registration is required. To register, visit
