ASGE is on a mission to save lives and has set a goal to send 5,000 e-Cards during the month of March to raise awareness about colorectal cancer screening. The Society has created two new e-Cards and a special birthday e-Card (for those over 50) this year that remind recipients to get screened and contain basic facts about colorectal cancer prevention. Each e-Card can be personalized by the sender.
