The University of Alabama at Birmingham is partnering with Bibb Medical Center to provide screening and diagnostic modalities for colon and stomach cancers, in addition to reflux disease and swallowing difficulty.

“Our goal at UAB is not only to provide high-quality care to the people of Birmingham, but to help eliminate health care disparities in Alabama,” said Drew Gunnells, MD, assistant professor in the UAB Marnix E. Heersink School of Medicine’s Department of Surgery.

“60 percent of colorectal cancer deaths could be prevented with early screening,” said Joseph Marchant, CEO and president of Bibb Medical Center. “This partnership with UAB ensures that our community has access to quality providers here at home.”
