The morning of Saturday, Feb. 29, a robust group of Brighton Center for Specialty Care (BCSC) Medical Procedure Unit staff volunteers and Brighton High School (BHS) students teamed up to “paint the town blue” to raise awareness for the importance of colon cancer screening, prevention and treatment.
Staff from BCSC’s Medical Procedures Unit staffed and decorated two informational tables, educating passers-by on the importance of screening for colon cancer. Downtown Brighton’s light poles were adorned with colon cancer awareness signs, window paintings and pool noodles folded into the shape of blue ribbons to promote the initiative, bringing significant visibility to the event.
“We were thrilled to partner with the city of Brighton and numerous area businesses in decorating downtown,” said BCSC Registered Nurse Amy Roring. “Not only was the event well received by Brighton residents, but it also helped BHS student volunteers develop a deeper understanding for the importance of colon cancer screening.”
