BINGHAMTON (WBNG) — Broome County is officially “going blue”for the month of March to kick off Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month. “Working with employers to develop paid time off policies for cancer screening is really a good business decision. It saves lives, and it saves money,” said Public Health Educator Mary McFadden.

In addition, the Broome County Health Department’s Community Cancer Prevention in Action Program (CPiA) is currently working with local businesses to help prevent cancer. Security Mutual and the DoubleTree Hotel in downtown Binghamton will light their buildings blue to promote preventative cancer screenings. So far, the Broome County YMCA and YWCA have both adopted paid time off policies in the workplace. CPiA helps local businesses develop paid time off programs, allowing their employees to receive early detection screenings without worrying about their paychecks.
