One of our community education tools is an Inflatable Super Colon. It lets us give you a close-up view of healthy colon tissue, tissue with nonmalignant colorectal diseases, colorectal polyps, and various stages of colorectal cancer. This is a great tool for teaching the community about the risk of developing colorectal cancer, symptoms of colorectal and treatment options, and the importance of preventative screenings.
Our inflatable torso helps teach the community about breast health. This walk-though exhibit features a diagram of the breast tissue, illustrates the growth of breast cancer tumors, and highlights the importance of mammograms and early detection.

Upcoming Community Health Events and Education Classes
Trauma continues to be the leading cause of morbidity and mortality in the 10-44 age group, killing more young Americans than cancer, heart disease, and stroke combined. Trauma claims a life every six minutes and is responsible for serious disability every three seconds. Yet more people are surviving critical injuries than ever before. This is due to the training of expert trauma care providers with advanced trauma skills.
We are pleased to coordinate professional educational opportunities for trauma physicians, nurses, and emergency medical professionals.
Southeastern Med is a Central Ohio Trauma System (COTS) member. This program is coordinated with the Emergency Nurses Association (ENA), which is accredited as a provider of continuing nursing education by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation.
