In Response to: ‘Ever the Teacher’

President Bowen, who died of colon cancer, was an exemplary Princetonian. He would want all of us to honor his memory by getting screened for colon cancer (with a colonoscopy at 50, or at 40 if a parent, sibling, or child had colon cancer). Death from colon cancer is preventable.
