NIHD Healthy Lifestyle Talk: Understanding today’s colorectal cancer

Join Northern Inyo Healthcare District (NIHD) for a Healthy Lifestyle Talk on Colorectal Cancer Awareness, featuring Dr. Robbin Cromer-Tyler and Dr. Connor Wiles. The virtual event will occur on Thursday, March 28, at 5:30 p.m. via Zoom and the NIHD YouTube Channel,

Colorectal cancer is a prevalent and often preventable disease. According to the American Cancer Society, it is the third most common cancer diagnosed in both men and women in the United States. However, with regular screening, this cancer can often be found early, when it is most treatable.

During the talk, hosted by NIHD’s Chief Medical Officer Dr. Adam Hawkins, Dr. Cromer-Tyler and Dr. Wiles will discuss important topics, including the need for screening, available screening options, how to protect your health, and why age 45 has become the new age 50 regarding screening recommendations.

Dr. Robbin Cromer-Tyler is a board-certified general surgeon with more than 20 years of medical and leadership experience. She continues to expand her knowledge and skill and serves as one of NIHD’s robotic-assisted surgeons, specializing in gallbladder and hernia treatments.

Likewise, Dr. Connor Wiles is a board-certified general surgeon trained to perform robotic-assisted surgeries. Coming up on his first anniversary with the District, Dr. Wiles finds practicing in Bishop a unique opportunity to serve a community that would otherwise travel a great distance to receive care. His training allows him to offer a wide range of services here in the Owens Valley.

Northern Inyo Healthcare District's Healthy Lifestyle Talks are free and open to the public. These monthly talks cover various health topics and are available on the NIHD YouTube Channel for convenient viewing.
