On the June 7, 2018 segment of In The Ladies Room with Dr. Donnica, Dr. Donnica Moore featured HealthyWomen’s CEO and RN, Beth Battaglino, who has the distinct honor of being the first guest of the podcast to have a 2nd episode! In this segment, Beth discusses a recent survey done with Exact Sciences to learn about women’s attitudes toward cancer screenings and how many women are skipping routine screenings for colorectal cancer. Although women ranked colorectal cancer as the second cancer they are most worried about, over 1/3 of women surveyed are skipping their screenings. Colon cancer is the 3rd leading cause of cancer deaths and 90% of colorectal cases are treatable when caught early. Beth and Dr. Donnica Moore discuss the importance of early detection and the many options that are available for colon cancer screenings.
