Description

Are you over 50? Then you should be screened for colorectal cancer. As the third most common cancer in the U.S., it affects men and women of all racial and ethnic groups. It can occur in the colon or rectum and often has no warning signs – so the earlier it is diagnosed, the better.

As we age, we are also more prone to other colorectal problems, including bowel incontinence. While usually not a serious medical problem, it can interfere with daily life and lead many to avoid social activities for fear of embarrassment.

Don’t be caught in the dark. Join our free luncheon seminar to find out more about these conditions and how our UF Health colorectal surgeons can help.  The speaker will be Atif Iqbal, M.D. 

Please note there is construction and Starting Jan. 26, vehicle access to the UF Health Shands Cancer Hospital via Archer Road and Circle of Hope Drive will be closed. All vehicle traffic must use the temporary access route via Southwest 16th Street.  Click here for more details and a map.

  • Attendees for the seminar should self-park across the street in the north campus - east patient/visitor garage (on Newell Drive) and walk back across Archer Road to the south campus. The garage parking is free with a voucher. 
  • If you have a handicap parking permit you may use the valet parking located at the Cancer Hospital front entrance.  The valet parking is free with a voucher.
  • Vouchers: As always, patients and their visitors must obtain a patient parking voucher after they receive care, from their outpatient check-out, nurses’ station or other location of service; then present the voucher to the valet staff or parking attendant upon exit for free parking.

Please call 352.733.0000 if you have questions or need assistance with registering
