Archive: Colorectal surgeons team up to promote Ulcerative Colitis (UC) awareness

In the summer of 2009, Dr. Bruce Harms, Professor of Surgery and Chief of the Section of Colon and Rectal Surgery, operated on Paula Jandt, a devoted mother and wife, who had been suffering from ulcerative colitis (UC) for many years. Although Paula’s operation was successful, colon cancer had spread and Paula lost her battle with UC later that summer.

Recently, faculty from the Section of Colon and Rectal Surgery teamed up with Paula’s husband Tim Scott and Smile With Paula to raise awareness about early detection and treatment for UC.
