MARYSVILLE – Come meet Community Memorial Healthcare’s new general surgeon, Dr. Cheryl Rice, at April’s monthly Sterling Connection lunch & learn program for adults 50 and older on Wednesday, April 4, 2018. As March is national Colon Cancer Awareness Month, Dr. Rice’s program will focus on the disease that can be considered a sensitive subject by many.

Colon cancer is the 2nd leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States, but if detected in the early stages by following the recommended screening schedule, it can be effectively treated and beat in 9 out of 10 cases. Dr. Rice will explain preventative health measures and screening options, as well as help identify symptoms people should be aware of.

Dr. Rice will also be available for a question and answer session following her presentation. She is passionate about early cancer detection, both for colon and breast health. She is a local expert on breast health and cancers, and treated more than 600 cases of breast cancer during her years at Lawrence Memorial Hospital, Lawrence. She has been practicing general surgery at Community Memorial Healthcare since July 2017.

The Sterling Connection is a complimentary service offered at CMH in partnership through Bryan Health in Lincoln, Neb. Designed as a health and wellness program for people 50 and older, Sterling Connection members enjoy a quarterly magazine, newsletter, and educational and social events.
