Just in time for Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month, LICDH was featured in the Long Island Healthcare Profiles section of both Good Housekeeping and Woman's Day.
“With timely screening, colorectal cancer is preventable," Dr. Leonard Stein of LICDH told the magazines. "Furthermore, it is treatable and curable if diagnosed at an early stage. Colonoscopy is an effective screening test. It is recommended at age 50—age 45 for African Americans— and often earlier if there is a family history of colon cancer or polyps.”
