On February 14, 2017, The Giant Colon Tour visited the Jean-Coutu Pavilion at the Université de Montréal. This well attended event was held in the impressive Morris and Rosalind-Goodman atrium in partnership with students from the Department of Pharmacy. The goal of this activity was to raise awareness of colorectal cancer, discuss the benefits of screening and healthy lifestyles, and learn how to prevent the disease. With the theme “In the Heart of the Colon” in honor of St. Valentine’s Day, hundreds of students walked through the Giant Colon with great curiosity and enthusiasm. In addition, several staff members took a few minutes of their busy day to visit this impressive awareness exhibit. The students also organized a photo contest where the participants took a picture with The Giant Colon and published them on Facebook under #colongeantudem for a chance to win several prizes. The event was a real success and the CCAC is proud to have been a part of this event at this famous Montreal university.
