YNHH to promote colorectal cancer awareness
During National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month in March, Yale New Haven Health physicians will be featured in articles and social media posts about colorectal cancer, including prevention and screening – particularly the effectiveness of home stool kits. Experts with Smilow Cancer Hospital’s Screening and Prevention Program have created a flyer featuring FAQs about colorectal cancer and screening. For a free copy, contact the Smilow Cancer Screening and Prevention Program at 203-200-3030 or [email protected].
YNHHS honored for music performances for patients
Yale New Haven Health and Yale School of Music alumni recently received a Yale Alumni Association Board of Governors Excellence Award for the Music for Healing program. The program features recorded performances by Yale School of Music alumni that are available on patient room TVs at different YNHHS delivery networks. The program was organized by School of Music alumni, who created the online concert series Home2Home when COVID-19 canceled performance opportunities. YNHHS collaborated with the alumni to bring the program to patients and health system staff.
