March is Colon Cancer Awareness Month and Idaho Matters looks at prevention, screening and treatment. We talk about prevention, detection and treatment with St. Luke's colon/rectal surgeon, Dr. Benjamin Karsten and we talk about colon cancer education with Vicky Jekich, director of community outreach for the Mountain States Tumor Institute and Nora Hall, a teacher with the Boise School District.
