• If You’ve Been Screened or Plan to Get Screened,
    Sign the Pledge to Fight Colon Cancer

    UAB and the American Cancer Society have joined forces on an initiative called “80 by 18”, which challenges you take action toward preventing colon cancer. Although this is a national effort, we are committed to achieving our goal of 80 percent of all UAB employees age 50 and older getting screened for colon cancer by 2018. However, it’s not just about us; UAB is invested in keeping our entire community healthy. So whether you are a UAB employee or simply support our mission of preventing disease, join the fight against colon cancer by making your pledge to get screened right away! If you’ve already had a screening, you can sign the pledge as well.
