Illinois' Vince Demuzio Colorectal Screening Initiative so far has helped some 100 uninsured or under-insured people in 22 counties get colonoscopies and fecal occult blood tests to test for cancer. Paid for by public health grants and run by the Southern Illinois University School of Medicine, the program is named for Vince Demuzio, a state senator who died from colon cancer in 2004.
