    March is Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month -

    Colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer in the
    United States and a leading cause of death from cancer. Colorectal cancer affects all racial and
    ethnic groups and is most often found in people ages 50 and older.

    The best way to
    prevent colorectal cancer is to get screened regularly starting at age 50. There are often no signs
    or symptoms of colorectal cancer thats why its so important to get screened.

    To
    increase awareness about the importance of colorectal cancer screening, The Town Planner
    is proudly participating in Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month.

    People over age 50
    have the highest risk of colorectal cancer. You may also be at higher risk if you are African
    American, smoke, or have a family history of colorectal cancer.

    Everyone can take
    these healthy steps to help prevent colorectal cancer:

    Get
    screened starting at age 50. Quit smoking and stay away from secondhand smoke. Get
    active and eat healthy.

    Services Transportation Plan Update

    On behalf of the Maryland Transit Administration (MTA) the KFH Group invites you to participate in the update of the Maryland Coordinated Public Transit-Human Services Transportation Plans. These regional plans identify the transportation needs of individuals with disabilities, older adults, and people with low incomes; provide strategies for meeting local needs; and prioritize transportation services and projects for funding and implementation.



    Input from you and a wide range of stakeholders is a key component in the update of the Coordinated Transportation Plans. In addition, while the latest version of each region's plan will serve as the basis for funding through the MTA's Section 5310 (Enhanced Mobility of Seniors and Individuals with Disabilities) Program for State FY2016 and 2017, future projects through the Section 5310 program will be derived from the updated plans. Therefore, it is vital that current and prospective applicants for Section 5310 funds are involved in the planning process.
