Employees of Maternal and Family Health Services (MFHS) at offices throughout Pennsylvania took part in the Northeast Regional Cancer Institute's ninth annual C.A.S.U.A.L. (Colon cancer Awareness Saves Unlimited Adult Lives) Day. The event is a dress-down day where individuals purchase and wear awareness T-shirts and pins to spread the word about colorectal cancer prevention and screening. All proceeds from C.A.S.U.A.L. Day support the ongoing efforts by the Cancer Institute to raise awareness about colorectal cancer risk factors and the importance of screening in northeastern Pennsylvania. Some of the participants, from left: John Konopki, training coordinator and C.A.S.U.A.L. Day team captain, Maternal and Family Health Services; Richard Mackey, chief financial officer, Maternal and Family Health Services; Christine Zavaskas, community relations coordinator, Cancer Institute; Midge Ann Smithburg, office coordinator, Maternal and Family Health Services; Bette Cox Saxton, president and chief executive officer, Maternal and Family Health Services; and Bob Durkin, president, Cancer Institute.
