“According to the CDC, in 2010, more than 27,000 men died from colon cancer,” said Patricia Buss, M.D., medical and health care services operations officer for Health Net. “If we can help to increase the number of men being screened, particularly those over age 50, we can help to significantly reduce the death toll.”
