Colon Cancer Awareness
presented by Shirley Shih MD, Northwell Health Monday March 11, 2019
1:00 PM until 2:00 PM
March is Colon Cancer awareness month and colon cancer is the third most common cancer afflicting all Americans regardless of age, gender or race. In fact, the incidence and prevalence of colon cancer is increasing in younger and younger populations. Join us for an informative talk from Northwell Health Colorectal Surgeon, Dr. Shirley Shih, in anticipation of colon cancer awareness month on how to prevent, diagnose and treat this disease.
Dr. Shih completed her surgical residency at George Washington University Hospital. She completed a year of colorectal research in Weston, FL at the Cleveland Clinic and then proceeded to finish a year of clinical colorectal fellowship at Indiana University. She practiced in the suburbs of Philadelphia for 7 years before returning home to Long Island to join Northwell Health as a board certified colorectal surgeon.
Registration suggested beginning Wednesday, January 2 at 10:00 a.m. by calling 466-8055, ext. 208/254 or register online.
