March is Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month
 
Colorectal cancer is the fourth most common cancer in the United States and the
second leading cause of death from cancer. Colorectal cancer affects
people in all racial and ethnic groups and is most often found in people age 50 and older.
The good news?
If everyone age 50 and older were screened regularly, 6 out of 10 deaths from colorectal cancer could be
prevented. Communities, health professionals, and families can work together to encourage people to get screened.

MARCH IS NATIONAL NUTRITION MONTH®
The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics promotes the observation of National Nutrition Month® to raise awareness of the importance of food and nutrition in achieving and maintaining good health.  This presents an opportunity to emphasize that good nutrition is a major factor in the health of women and infants and helps lead to healthy pregnancies, good birth outcomes, and infants staying healthy and reaching their first birthday. 
Nutrition for Women
·       Women of childbearing age, especially those who are thinking of becoming pregnant, should take 400 micrograms of folic acid daily. Taking folic acid before becoming pregnant and throughout pregnancy is essential in reducing the risk of birth defects.  Eating a balanced diet and maintaining a healthy weight to avoid obesity are important for good birth outcomes and healthy babies.
