#CECIL Highlight of Health Fair

CECIL, the University of Illinois Cancer Center’s giant inflatable colon whose job it is to spread awareness about the importance of colon cancer screening, was a highlight of the regional Oak Park-River Forest Chamber of Commerce Community Health and Wellness Fair.

The walk-through display was just one part of the Cancer Center’s strong participation in the crowded annual fair held April 23 at FFC Oak Park.

Visitors to the Cancer Center’s other three stations at the April 23 fair were assessed for genetic testing eligibility; learned about clinical trials; explored our education and training opportunities; and got more information about cancer prevention and survivorship programs.
