On Tuesday, March 1, Mayo Clinic will broadcast a colonoscopy live on the Periscope mobile app. The #ScopeScope will start sometime between 7:30-8 a.m. CST.
Watch highlights from the broadcast.
Colorectal cancer is one of the leading causes of cancer deaths, claiming about 50,000 lives each year in the U.S. alone, but with appropriate screening it’s also among the most preventable. We hope this live broadcast will demystify colonoscopy and also encourage more people to get screened. Learn more on the Mayo Clinic News Network and Mayo Clinic Connect.
