Get Your Rear in Gear

On November 6, 2017, Maria Grasso, executive director of Get Your Rear in Gear (GYRIG) Philadelphia, presented Jefferson CEO Dr. Stephen Klasko with a check for $105,000. GYRIG Philadelphia, a Colon Cancer Coalition event held each March, continues its nearly 10-year partnership with Jefferson Health and the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center at Jefferson to raise awareness and funds for colorectal cancers. In addition to supporting the clinical research of Drs. Scott Goldstein and Edith Mitchell, GYRIG has helped to create a Direct Access Colonoscopy Coordinator position in the Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology.
