Physicians Endoscopy and Colon Cancer Challenge Foundation Partner to Raise Colon Cancer Awareness
Date:4/1/2013

NEW YORK, April 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Colon Cancer Challenge Foundation (CCCF) and Physicians Endoscopy (PE) today announced that they have partnered in the fight against colorectal cancer. Four of the New York City-based endoscopy centers are participating in the annual Colon Cancer Challenge, a running event held in Central Park to raise awareness of colorectal cancer and raise funds for colorectal cancer research, on April 7.

"We are honored to be a part of the Colon Cancer Challenge Foundation event," said Annie Sariego , vice president of operations for Physicians Endoscopy. "At Physicians Endoscopy, it's our mission to not only bring quality gastroenterological care to our communities, but, on a more basic level, to help bring colon cancer awareness to all of the people in these communities. People of all backgrounds and income levels need to know the risks and get the proper screening if we are to eradicate this disease, and we feel a responsibility to make sure that happens."  

The four participating endoscopy centers, Advanced Endoscopy Center, East Side Endoscopy Center, Carnegie Hill Endoscopy Center and Ambulatory Center for Endoscopy, are each creating teams to raise money for the Colon Cancer Challenge. Teams participate by running in the Colon Cancer Challenge and help raise awareness through team sponsorship.

"Physicians Endoscopy provides a unique model of health care that makes them a great fit in getting the word out about life-saving colorectal cancer screenings," said Dr. Thomas Weber , M.D., FACS, founder of the Colon Cancer Challenge Foundation, professor of surgery at the State University of New York at Downstate and chief of surgery at the Department of Veterans Affairs New York Harbor Healthcare System, Brooklyn Campus. "The Colon Cancer Challenge Foundation has a vision of a world without colorectal cancer, and that vision starts with awareness through organizations like this."

This year is the 10th anniversary of the Colon Cancer Challenge, which was founded by Dr. Weber. The event generated support from more than 10,000 participants and attendees last year. It provides an opportunity for those affected by colorectal cancer to recognize and remember loved ones and survivors.

Physicians Endoscopy is a nationally recognized development and management partner for single-specialty EASCs. The company currently operates 27 partnered facilities in 13 states and will open several additional facilities in the next twelve months. For more information, please visit www.endocenters.com.
