The Presbyterian College School of Pharmacy's American Pharmacists' Association Academy of Student Pharmacists (APhA-ASP), under the tutelage of faculty member Dr. David Eagerton, recently raised colorectal cancer awareness in Clinton, SC at their 4th Annual Low Country Boil and Corn Hole Tournament.  This year's event raised $2,800, which was generously donated to the Center for Colon Cancer Research to assist in its research, outreach, and screening programs.  We congratulate the students of APhA-ASP for their creative efforts on behalf of colon cancer advocacy.

Dr. Jim AllisonDr. James Allison, of the University of California, San Francisco, will be coming to the University of South Carolina to give a talk on colorectal cancer screening.  Dr. Allison is a nationally and internationally recognized expert on screening modalities for colorectal cancer, particularly fecal immunochemical testing (FIT), and has written extensively on the subject.  His talk will provide a rational, evidence-based comparison of the various methods currently in use, including their advantages and disadvantages.  His presentation is entitled, "There is No One Best Colorectal Cancer Screening Test: The Proof and Benefits of Getting FIT," and will occur on Wednesday May 13, at 1:00 pm in Room 114 of the Public Health Research Center on the USC campus.  An open discussion will take place following Dr. Allison’s lecture.
