The Stennis Family Foundation Clinicians’ Network for Specialized Care in Colon Cancer Treatment(Clinicians’ Network) comprises primary care physicians, medical interns and residents, and allied health professionals(physician assistants, nurse practitioners). The purpose of the Clinicians Network is to provide the most effective screening, early detection and treatment options for the African-American community, and the most current information/studies on colon cancer to further clinicians’ efforts in the care of their African-American patients.
Respected medical specialists pioneered this effort for the Stennis Family Foundation. They determined the format for the clinicians’ workshops including strategies and resources needed to get patients screened, empowering patients to understand why they are getting screened and incorporating colon cancer prevention strategies as part of their overall healthcare.
The Stennis Family Foundation Care to Be Aware program seeks to educate and guide elementary school youth, and their families, on the importance of nutrition, exercise, and healthy lifestyle to lead a productive life and prevent obesity and other ailments that lead to colon cancer.
The Stennis Family Foundation Care “4” Yourself campaign is an ambitious and critical, grass-roots community program created to prevent the deadly affects of colon cancer in African-Americans. Through health education presentations and outreach efforts, this colon cancer campaign provides critical information and support to empower participants, guided by the motto Care “4” Yourself.
