MCW on the RADIO

Join us on Saturday, January 13 at 4 pm on NEWS/TALK 1130 WISN for the next program of “The Word on Medicine” supported by Selig Leasing Co., and produced by the Department of Surgery. This multidisciplinary, bi-weekly radio show will highlight innovation and discovery across MCW – how knowledge changes life!  

Focusing primarily on Colon Cancer and screening techniques, the panel of experts will discuss prevention and screening for colon cancer, what happens after initial cancer diagnosis, primary treatment options, and quality of life post-treatment from the patient’s perspective.
