Michigan Outreach Health Festival: Hail, Troy!
Susie’s Cause teamed up with Beaumont Health, Michigan’s largest health care system, to provide the local community of Troy, Mich., a free day of overall health education, with a particular emphasis on colorectal cancer screening and prevention, alongside live performances from area arts groups and entertainers, on Saturday, Aug. 6. Over 1100 people attended the festival which is specifically designed to provide colon cancer education to underserved communities, in which colon cancer diagnoses and deaths occur at an alarmingly high rate, with disproportionate screening suspected to be at least partly to blame. Thanks to sustaining sponsor Lilly Oncology for continuing support as we take these health festivals across the country.
