As a rural general surgeon who performs a lot of endoscopy, I can see from experience the benefits of colon cancer screening. I deal with many fewer patients in need of colon resection because of these efforts. I appreciate all I have learned through this wonderful society.......I truly find this society to be one of the most beneficial societies I belong to!
