UofL goes blue for a day to raise colon cancer awareness

This Friday, March 3, UofL employees are asked to do something that may make some Cardinals cringe: Wear blue. But there is a worthy cause behind the annual “Blue of L Day” — Colon Cancer Awareness. 

March marks Colon Cancer Awareness Month. For the occasion, the Kentucky Cancer Program, University Club and Get Healthy Now are teaming up in promotion of Blue of L Day, encouraging staff and faculty to dress in blue for prizes and to raise awareness.

On Friday, employees can stop by the University Club between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. and pick up a free cancer colon screening kit, learn about Get Healthy Now healthy campus initiatives and take advantage of the U Club’s “open to everyone” lunch invitation.
