Join us on Wednesday, April 27 at 7PM for a conversation about colon cancer prevention. Dr. Jen Jorgensen will examine colon cancer as the second leading cause of cancer death in the US, affecting about 1 in 20 people.  Learn more about how colon cancer develops and what you can do to prevent it.

Dr. Jennifer Jorgensen was an Army internist for about 10 years.  After leaving the Army, she completed her GI fellowship at the University of Michigan in 2012 and has since been with Confluence Health.  She loves taking care of the people of our valley and although she specializes in therapeutic endoscopy, is very passionate about colon cancer as it is one the few cancers that can actually be prevented with early screening.
