Episode #32: Stories are Powerful (how the Faces of Blue Campaign works to increase CRC Screening)

March 22, 2022

Dr. Michael Weinstein of Capital Digestive Care talks to Erin Peterson of the Colon Cancer Coalition and Dr. Milena Gould Suarez of Baylor College of Medicine about the Faces of Blue campaign and the patients, physicians, and family members who share their experiences with colorectal cancer.



By highlighting the personal stories of patients and survivors, the campaign seeks to encourage preventive colorectal cancer screening.


Dr. Milena Gould Suarez shares about losing her grandmother to colon cancer and how that experience fuels her motivation to educate the community and other healthcare providers about colon cancer.


Join Dr. Weinstein, Dr. Suarez and Erin as they discuss how independent GI physicians can share their stories to educate patients and providers about risk factors and encourage people to be screened for colorectal cancer starting at 45 years of age.
