On Friday, March 1, 2019, Claxton-Hepburn Medical Center employees joined many Americans across the Nation to Dress in Blue Day. According to the Colorectal Cancer Alliance, Dress in Blue Day lets allies everywhere join our mission to end colorectal cancer. Every year, more than 140,000 people are diagnosed with this highly preventable disease. We join more than 1.4 million colorectal cancer patients and survivors living today. We go blue for them, their families and our community because we believe your tomorrow is worth defending. Employees were encouraged to wear blue on March 1.
