Richmond Magazine: Preventive Maintenance

One pleasing thing about being a writer is that you sometimes get to tackle challenging subjects that are out of your normal comfort zone. Case in point is my latest feature for Richmond Magazine, which probes -- sorry -- the life-saving benefits of modern colonoscopies.

It’s the second most deadly form of cancer, but Dr. Doumit S. BouHaidar maintains colorectal cancer is one you can do something about. 
The gastroenterologist at Virginia Commonwealth University’s Massey Cancer Center is something of a pied piper for colonoscopies. They work, he says. “Screening is a very important strategy to fight this cancer.”

Seriously, it's an important subject. Click here to read "Preventive Maintenance" or pick up the May issue of Rich Mag, on newsstands now (as one might say).
